If the Dodgers and Manager Don Mattingly dream of building momentum off Monday’s 3-1 victory in Milwaukee, they just may have the right guy on the mound Tuesday night.
Right-hander Zack Greinke is returning to one of his former haunts, and should be feeling pretty good about it.
Greinke, who spent a season and half with the Brewers, has never lost at Miller Park. He is 15-0 with a 2.89 ERA in 24 games at Miller, and the team 23-1 in those starts.
This is only Greinke’s second start since coming off the disabled list with a broken collarbone and fourth of the season, so grand expectations by the Dodgers might be risky.
But the Brewers know Greinke’s abilities well. He went 16-6 with a 3.83 ERA for them in 2011, leading Milwaukee into the playoffs.
