Greinke isn't just a good pitcher, he's a streaky pitcher and -- like a lot of things in this rapidly improving Dodgers season -- his fortunes appear to be on a rapid ascent. Saturday's 1-0 shutout of the Colorado Rockies, in which he gave up only two hits and struck out nine batters in 110 crisp pitches, was only the latest evidence.
