(SportsNetwork.com) - Zack Greinke goes after win No. 6 on Saturday when the Los Angeles Dodgers continue their four-game series with the Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium.
Greinke was again tremendous on Monday against the Miami Marlins, but did not receive a decision, despite giving up just one run and six hits over seven innings. He was in line for the win, but Miami rallied before the Dodgers won dramatically in the bottom of the ninth.
Still, he is 5-0 on the year with a 1.52 ERA. Even more impressive is the right-hander's record against the NL West. Greinke is 22-1 with a 1.95 ERA in 32 starts against division foes since 2013, and he's won all 16 decisions with a 1.79 ERA over 20 such starts since a home loss to Colorado on Sept. 28, 2013.
Greinke has faced the Rockies 15 times (14 starts) and is 7-2 with a 3.57 ERA.
Colorado, meanwhile, will turn to lefty Jorge De La Rosa, who is 0-2 with a 9.56 ERA. De La Rosa did not get a decision on Sunday against the Dodgers, but was not sharp, as he surrendered five runs and walked six batters in just four innings of his team's 9-5 loss.
De La Rosa is 5-10 lifetime versus the Dodgers with a 5.89 ERA in 22 games (18 starts).
Colorado's woes continued on Friday, as Clayton Kershaw won his 100th career game and Jimmy Rollins notched his 900th RBI Los Angeles' 6-4 win.
Kershaw (2-2) recorded his milestone win by allowing three runs on four hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings, improving to 7-0 against the Rockies since Sept. 2, 2013.
"It's cool," Kershaw said of the win. "I don't know if it means a whole lot, but it's something to celebrate."
Rollins finished 4-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI, while Howie Kendrick supplied three hits for the Dodgers, who ended a two-game skid.
Daniel Descalso hit a three-run double, while starter Eddie Butler (2-4) gave up four runs -- three earned -- on six hits and four walks over 2 2/3 frames for the Rockies, who won Thursday's series opener, but fell for the 12th time in 13 games overall.
The Rockies have been without manager Walt Weiss, who underwent an appendectomy earlier in the week. Weiss could be back on the bench Saturday, but if not, bench coach Tom Runnels will continue to fill in.
The Dodgers are 6-1 against the Rockies this season and have won nine of 10 and 17 of the last 21 meetings between the NL West foes.
