Greinke struck out six, ending the game with a 2.92 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After producing very inconsistent results at Chase Field a year ago, Greinke has been dominant in his home park during his second season as a Diamondback. The standout right-hander is now 10-0 with a 2.39 ERA in 12 starts there in 2017, while he's won just twice in eight road outings. His next assignment will come away from home against the Cardinals on Saturday.

June 26 4:25 PM PT5:25 PM MT6:25 PM CT7:25 PM ET19:25 ET23:25 GMT7:25 4:25 PM MST6:25 PM EST6:55 PM VEN3:25 UAE (+1)6:25 PM CT-Zack Greinke improved to 9-4, allowing one run on three hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 6-1 on Monday. Greinke struck out five, ending the game with a 3.08 ERA and 1.06 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke struggled early, needing 23 pitches to get through the first inning. He worked around the traffic without giving up a run and settled in after that, keeping the Phillies in check until the fifth. He improved to 7-0 with a 2.68 ERA in nine home starts, and his next outing is scheduled for Sunday in Phoenix against the Rockies. Greinke is 1-1 with a 3.98 ERA in three starts against Colorado this season.
June 21 9:48 AM PT10:48 AM MT11:48 AM CT12:48 PM ET12:48 ET16:48 GMT0:48 9:48 AM MST11:48 AM EST12:18 PM VEN20:48 UAE11:48 AM CT-Zack Greinke fell to 8-4, allowing four runs on nine hits in 7.1 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Tuesday.

Analysis: The right-hander hasn't been nearly as dominant in his last four starts, allowing 15 runs and 21 hits over 23 innings. He's also given up three home runs over that span. We expect him to turn things around soon.
June 8 10:45 PM PT11:45 PM MT12:45 AM CT1:45 AM ET1:45 ET5:45 GMT13:45 10:45 PM MST12:45 AM EST1:15 AM VEN9:45 UAE12:45 AM CT-Zack Greinke improved to 8-3, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the San Diego Padres 7-4 on Wednesday.

June 2 9:11 AM PT10:11 AM MT11:11 AM CT12:11 PM ET12:11 ET16:11 GMT0:11 9:11 AM MST11:11 AM EST11:41 AM VEN20:11 UAE11:11 AM CT-Zack Greinke improved to 7-3, allowing two runs - one earned - on four hits and two walks in 7.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Thursday. Greinke struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.06 ERA and 0.98 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke moved into a tie for the NL lead in victories, and the Marlins remained the only team to never beat him. He's 5-0 with a 2.75 ERA in nine starts against them, including 3-0 with a 0.79 ERA in three outings at Marlins Park. Greinke has another very favorable matchup Tuesday at home versus San Diego. He's 5-0 with a 2.49 ERA at home this year and 9-2 with a 1.93 ERA in 18 starts against the Padres.
May 28 7:24 AM PT8:24 AM MT9:24 AM CT10:24 AM ET10:24 ET14:24 GMT22:24 7:24 AM MST9:24 AM EST9:54 AM VEN18:24 UAE9:24 AM CT-Zack Greinke fell to 6-3, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks in 5.1 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 on Saturday. Greinke struck out six, ending the game with a 3.24 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke had never lost a start at Miller Park in 1 1/2 years with the Brewers and took the mound Saturday 16-2 with a 3.07 mark all-time in Milwaukee.
May 23 6:48 AM PT7:48 AM MT8:48 AM CT9:48 AM ET9:48 ET13:48 GMT21:48 6:48 AM MST8:48 AM EST9:18 AM VEN17:48 UAE8:48 AM CT-Greinke improved to 6-2, allowing one run on four hits and one walk in 8.2 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-1 on Monday. Greinke struck out 12, ending the game with a 2.82 ERA and 0.97 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke was dominant again, looking a lot like the pitcher who went 19-3 with a 1.66 ERA two years ago.
May 17 9:39 AM PT10:39 AM MT11:39 AM CT12:39 PM ET12:39 ET16:39 GMT0:39 9:39 AM MST11:39 AM EST12:09 PM VEN20:39 UAE11:39 AM CT-Zack Greinke improved to 5-2, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks in 6.2 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the New York Mets 5-4 on Tuesday. Greinke struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.09 ERA and 1.03 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke wasn't nearly as sharp as he was five days earlier when he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning against Pittsburgh, but he still won a fourth straight decision. Tuesday marked the most runs he's allowed in six starts as he served up a pair of homers. He's allowed seven in his last four outings but next faces a White Sox lineup which ranks toward the bottom of the majors in home runs.
May 12 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET22:09 ET2:09 GMT10:09 7:09 PM MST9:09 PM EST9:39 PM VEN6:09 UAE (+1)9:09 PM CT-Greinke improved to 4-2, allowing one run on one hit and one walk in 8.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 on Thursday. Greinke struck out 11, ending the game with a 2.79 ERA and 1.03 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke has thrown one one-hitter, for Kansas City at Seattle on Aug. 30, 2009. He was trying to become the third Arizona pitcher to throw a no-hitter. Randy Johnson threw a perfect game at Atlanta on May 18, 2004, and Edwin Jackson had a no-hitter at Tampa Bay on June 25, 2010.
May 6 10:25 AM PT11:25 AM MT12:25 PM CT1:25 PM ET13:25 ET17:25 GMT1:25 10:25 AM MST12:25 PM EST12:55 PM VEN21:25 UAE12:25 PM CT-Zack Greinke improved to 3-2, allowing two runs on six hits in 7.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Colorado Rockies 6-3 on Friday. Greinke struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.09 ERA and 1.17 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Greinke has a 2.33 ERA over his last four starts with 33 strikeouts in 27 innings.
Apr. 30 9:51 AM PT10:51 AM MT11:51 AM CT12:51 PM ET12:51 ET16:51 GMT0:51 9:51 AM MST11:51 AM EST12:21 PM VEN20:51 UAE11:51 AM CT-Zack Greinke allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks in 6.0 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Saturday. Greinke struck out nine, ending the game with a 3.19 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The Arizona ace was in line for a second consecutive victory before the Rockies scored three times off Fernando Rodney in the ninth. Greinke has now turned in three straight good starts, posting a 2.25 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 20 innings during that stretch, but draws another potentially tough matchup Thursday in Washington.
Apr. 25 9:20 AM PT10:20 AM MT11:20 AM CT12:20 PM ET12:20 ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST11:50 AM VEN20:20 UAE11:20 AM CT-Greinke beat the Padres on Monday, striking out 11 in six innings as he allowed one run and six hits without walking a batter.
Analysis: Five days earlier, Greinke pitched a complete game in San Diego but lost 1-0. ''The slider was really sharp today,'' Greinke said. ''Two games in a row now, so that was nice. ... It makes the fastball better when you have a good slider.'' The right-hander dropped his ERA to 2.93 and now has 31 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings.
Apr. 20 8:50 AM PT9:50 AM MT10:50 AM CT11:50 AM ET11:50 ET15:50 GMT23:50 8:50 AM MST10:50 AM EST11:20 AM VEN19:50 UAE10:50 AM CT-Greinke allowed only a solo homer in the eighth inning, but that was enough in a 1-0 loss to the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday.
Analysis: This was Greinke's best performance of the season by far and the first in which he got out of the seventh inning.
Apr. 15 9:04 AM PT10:04 AM MT11:04 AM CT12:04 PM ET12:04 ET16:04 GMT0:04 9:04 AM MST11:04 AM EST11:34 AM VEN20:04 UAE11:04 AM CT-Greinke was charged with five runs and 10 hits in just five innings of a 7-1 loss to the Dodgers on Friday.
Analysis: Greinke has only made it beyond five innings in one of his three starts. It wasn't like the best I've ever pitched, but their at-bats are super quality and they hit the ball hard a lot,'' Greinke said. ''Just a good game by them.''
Apr. 9 8:12 AM PT9:12 AM MT10:12 AM CT11:12 AM ET11:12 ET15:12 GMT23:12 8:12 AM MST10:12 AM EST10:42 AM VEN19:12 UAE10:12 AM CT-Greinke limited Cleveland to a run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's 11-2 win.
Analysis: This was a solid improvement from a so-so debut in which Greinke lasted only five innings.
