Dodgers starter Zack Greinke last won on May 5. Since that time he has started nine times. Here are his innings pitched and earned runs allowed in each of those starts:

  • 5/11: 7 IP, 1 ER
  • 5/16: 6 IP, 1 ER
  • 5/22: 7.2 IP, 1 ER
  • 5/27: 6 IP, 1 ER
  • 6/02: 6 IP 5 ER
  • 6/07: 6.2 IP, 1ER
  • 6/13: 8 IP, 2 ER
  • 6/18: 7 IP, o ER
  • 6/23: 6 IP, 0 ER

The one bad start, in which he gave up five earned runs, was a no-decision which the Dodgers actually ended up winning. He lost the starts on May 16 and June 13. The rest were no-decisions.

He has a 1.05 ERA in May and a 2.14 ERA in June with exactly one win to show for it. Overall he’s 31st among 50 qualified starting pitchers in run support in the National League, but May and June have been absolutely brutal for him.
