He's pitched decently as of late, giving up two runs against Texas in his last start. vs Zach Greinke (8-3, 3.49 ERA) gave up four runs in his last start against the Reds, but before that was simply dominant. He had given up just one run in his previous three starts. At home, Greinke is 5-1. Despite the fact that the Dodgers are hot, they put up just nine runs in their four-game series with the Reds. They are still having issues scoring runs and against left-handers, are putting up just 3.96 runs per game. The Yankees will struggle on the road in a bigger ballpark against a tough right-hander in Greinke.
