Aug. 25 10:33 AM PT11:33 AM MT12:33 PM CT1:33 PM ET13:33 ET17:33 GMT1:33 10:33 AM MST12:33 PM EST1:03 PM VEN21:33 UAE12:33 PM CT-Greinke struck out five and reached 2,000 for his career Wednesday against the Braves. Greinke, 32, became the 78th pitcher to reach 2,000 strikeouts, fanning Freddie Freeman to start the fourth for the milestone.
Analysis: Greinke pitched six innings and allowed four runs, six hits and three walks in his first home start since June 28. He left that outing with a strained left oblique and went on the disabled list for more than a month. On Tuesday, he'll face the Giants for the first time since yielding four runs and eight hits over six innings on May 12.
Aug. 20 12:11 PM PT1:11 PM MT2:11 PM CT3:11 PM ET15:11 ET19:11 GMT3:11 12:11 PM MST2:11 PM EST2:41 PM VEN23:11 UAE2:11 PM CT-Greinke had a solid bounce-back performance Friday in San Diego, allowing two runs and seven hits in seven innings with two walks and eight strikeouts in a no-decision.
Analysis: Greinke was ripped for nine runs in 1 2/3 innings five days earlier in Boston. He has a favorable matchup Wednesday at home versus light-hitting Atlanta, a team against which he's 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA in his last four starts. He's 4-0 with a 2.90 ERA in his last five outings at Chase Field but hasn't pitched there since June.

Analysis: Greinke has surrendered 21 runs in five starts and has a 6.16 earned run average. "I thought I did all right. It's just kind of embarrassing giving up seven runs thinking you did all right," Greinke said. "I'll take it, as long as it's not like that all the time."

Analysis: After an extensive warmup and stretching routine and some long toss in the outfield, the Diamondbacks' new $206.5 million man tossed to catcher Welington Castillo on Friday under cloudy skies that provided cool, comfortable workout conditions. "Very nice," Castillo said on several pitches. Greinke didn't say much aside from regularly shaking his head.
