On Thursday night, Zack Greinke will attempt to win his 11th game of the year when he and the Los Angeles Dodgers take on right-hander Jhoulys Chacin and the Colorado Rockies.
Zack Greinke had another great outing in his last start by dominating the St. Louis Cardinals at home. He pitched seven strong innings in that game and allowed just one run on four base hits while striking out 10 batters and walking no one. On the season, he is 10-4 through 17 starts and he has struck out 111 batters in 103.2 innings.
Drew Stubbs should find himself in the Rockies' lineup on Thursday, as he is 9-for-21 against Greinke with two doubles in his career. None of the current Rockies have been able to hit a home run off of the right-hander.
Jhoulys Chacin's struggles continued on Monday as he lost his third game in a row when he was beaten by the Milwaukee Bucks on the road. He pitched 5.2 innings in that start and gave up a season-high seven earned runs on 11 hits while walking one and striking out four. Chacin is now 1-7 on the season with a 5.40 ERA and he is walking four batters per nine innings.
Chacin has never been a fan of facing Andre Ethier, who is 13-for-31 against him with three doubles, a home run and three RBI. Dodgers veteran Juan Uribe is 0-for-15 against him with six strikeouts.
