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
