Zack Greinke tossed five scoreless innings against the Brewers on Friday. He allowed just two hits but walked five while striking out six.
While Greinke managed to pitch his way out of a couple of jams and keep the runs off the board, his command really let him down in this one as he needed 99 pitches (55 strikes) to labor through the five frames. The five walks tied a season-worst set back on July 19 and he threw just 11-of-22 first-pitch strikes. He's going to need to remain a lot sharper the rest of the way if he's going to help lead the Dodgers towards the playoffs and his next outing against San Diego should be a great place to start.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Wade Davis will take over as the Royals' closer with Greg Holland on the 15-day disabled list.
Davis is instantly vaulted into top-5 closer status while he is closing, and has just as much value as Holland would have in the ninth inning. Davis is downright dominant, and could have the job for quite a while, as although the severity of Greg Holland's pectoral strain is unknown, Holland is expected to be out for a significant chunk of time. Davis should obviously now be owned in all leagues, and the biggest question about the job for now is whether Davis will hold onto the gig once Holland returns. Analysis: Ben Diamond
