(LOS ANGELES) — Zack Greinke shut down the Matt Kemp-less Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night in the Brewers 6-2 win.
Greinke (5-2) pitched six innings and struck out seven for the win and completed the four-game sweep of Los Angeles (32-19).
“We’ve been due for something like this for a while, so hopefully it continues,” said Greinke. “I feel like our offense is clicking and getting enough runs on the board so that we can get on a good roll if we keep pitching like we did in this series.”
Last year’s NL MVP Ryan Braun was scratched for Milwaukee (23-28) because of tightness in his right Achilles tendon. As for the Dodgers who lost Matt Kemp for at least a month after he re-aggravated his hamstring on Wednesday, they’ll look to continue their success without the slugger.
“Should be…a challenging time,” said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly before the game. “It’s a…time that you find out what kind of club you are.”
