Dodgers vs. Brewers pitching matchups: Zack Greinke returns to Milwaukee

Greinke has never lost a game he started at Miller Park. Can that streak continue on Tuesday?


After their series in Atlanta, the Dodgers will head to Milwaukee for a three-game series against the Brewers beginning Monday night at Miller Park. It marks the first time Zack Greinke will face his old team since getting traded last July. Here are the pitching matchups and television schedule for the weekday series.

Monday, 5:10 p.m. (KCAL)

The Dodgers are sending their three best pitchers at the Brewers, beginning with ace of aces Clayton Kershaw in the opener. Kershaw gets five days rest after throwing a career-high 132 pitches in his near shutout of the Nationals on Tuesday. Yovani Gallardo gets the call for the Brewers, making this a matchup of opening day starters.

Tuesday, 5:10 p.m. (KCAL)

Zack Greinke never lost at home as a Brewer, as he was 15-0 in 24 games, including 23 starts with a 2.89 ERA and 183 strikeouts in 149⅔ innings. The rookie Hiram Burgos has a 6.58 ERA in five starts, but he pitched a quality start in a no-decision at Dodger Stadium on Apr. 26.

Wednesday, 10:10 a.m. (Prime Ticket)

Hyun-jin Ryu looks to rebound from the shortest outing of his career, as he starts in the finale in Milwaukee. Wily Peralta has allowed 20 runs in 21⅓ innings over his last four starts and has a 5.94 ERA on the season.

The Dodgers have lost each of their last two road series in Milwaukee the last two seasons, going 2-5 at Miller Park during that span.
