Since getting roughed up in his second start of the season, the Milwaukee Brewers' Zack Greinke has been nearly untouchable over the last month-plus.
Rookie Wade Miley has also proved plenty formidable since transitioning to the Arizona Diamondbacks' rotation.
In what sets up as a low-scoring affair, Greinke takes the hill opposite Miley as the Brewers and Diamondbacks continue a three-game set Saturday night at Chase Field.
Greinke (5-1, 2.70 ERA), who was tagged for a season-worst eight runs in 3 2-3 innings of an 8-0 loss April 12 at Wrigley Field, has since gone 4-0 while giving up a combined nine earned over his last seven outings spanning 46 frames. The 2009 AL Cy Young winner has struck out 47 over that stretch and limited opponents to a .225 average.
Greinke has been especially dominant in his last three starts, going 2-0 with a 0.42 ERA while fanning 24 and walking two in 21 2-3 innings. The right-hander gave up a run and five hits over 6 2-3 innings Sunday in a...

Zack Greinke doesn't lose it often. But when he has, the Brewers pitcher has really lost it this season.
In nine starts this season, Greinke has registered a quality start in six of his outings. But on two occasions this season, the ace has crashed and burned on the mound.
Against Chicago on April 12, Greinke lasted just 3-23 innings, allowed eight earned runs and struck out...

MILWAUKEE Next to his locker in the Brewers clubhouse last week, Milwaukee center fielder Nyjer Morgan said what many were thinking when it came to the Brewers' disappointing 18-26 start this season.
It's not early anymore, he admitted. And it's true. With May quickly coming to a close, the Brewers can no longer excuse their slow start by pointing to a calendar.
Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada has been placed on the 15-day disabled list after straining his right quad running the bases on Wednesday night against the Giants, the team announced in a statement on Thursday afternoon. Right-handed reliever Mike McClendon will be called up from Triple-A Nashville to replace him.
According to reports citing general manager Doug Melvin, Estrada...
The Milwaukee Brewers have placed shortstop Cesar Izturis on the 15-day disabled list after he pulled his left hamstring running the bases against Arizona on Friday night.
The Brewers made the move right after the 7-1 victory, recalling shortstop Edwin Maysonette from Triple-A Nashville. Maysonette was optioned to Nashville on Wednesday when Milwaukee claimed Cody Ransom off waivers...
PHOENIX -- Sure, the season is not even a third of the way over. And the bulk of the intradivision games, where the results mean more, have not been played.
Still, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson was pretty clear before Saturdays game.
We have to have a push," he said.
The D-backs' first shove followed quickly, a resilient 8-5 win over the Brewers in which they overcame...
The award-winning handlebar mustache that formerly graced the upper lip of Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford is apparently no more.
After tweeting a picture of his former facial hair laid out in its original arrangement, with the title "RIP", it appears an era of facial decoration has come to an abrupt close.
The mustachioed Axford was named the Robert Goulet Memorial...
Opponents have been making themselves at home at Arizona's Chase Field all season.
The Milwaukee Brewers have been doing that for years, but are encountering some resistance this weekend.
The Diamondbacks try to build on an encouraging win and take a rare series from the Brewers in the desert in Sunday's finale.
Arizona (21-26) started the season in impressive fashion...
PHOENIX (AP) -- Ryan Braun, Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart homered and Yovani Gallardo maintained his mastery of Arizona on Friday night in the Milwaukee Brewers' 7-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.
Gallardo (3-4) held the Diamondbacks to one run and five hits through 7 1-3 innings to improve to 6-0 in six career starts against Arizona. That doesn't count a victory over the...
Photo: Matt York/APWe should all know how this goes by now: The Brewers pulled out a rare victory yesterday, but still managed to bleed wins thanks to one of their starters having to go on the DL. This time, it was shortstop Cesar Izturis, who suffered a strained left hamstring and will be out at least two weeks. In his place, Edwin Maysonet was recalled from Nashville.I know a...
