Zack Greinke gets the call for the Dodgers on Tuesday night, looking to rebound from Monday's loss to the Brewers at Miller Park. Greinke made his home in Milwaukee for nearly two full seasons (2012-2013), and enjoyed great success there.

The Brewers have won 24 of Greinke's 25 career starts at Miller Park (26 of 27 counting the playoffs), but unfortunately for the Dodgers that includes one start in each of the last two seasons.

Greinke as a Brewer was 15-0 with a 2.93 ERA in 23 starts at home, with 181 strikeouts and 34 walks in 147⅔ innings. The Brewers won 22 of those 23 starts, and in the only Milwaukee loss Greinke pitched eight scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts.

In the last two years Greinke is 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA at Miller Park, allowing five run in four innings in a start in 2013, and allowing four runs in six innings in a loss last season.

So far this year Greinke is off to a great start, at 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA in five starts, with all five starts coming against the NL West.

Matt Garza starts for the Brewers on Tuesday, his first career start against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers have lost three of their last four series at Miller Park, and are 5-9 in games in Milwaukee dating back to 2011.

Roster move

The Brewers on Tuesday activated second baseman Scooter Gennett from the disabled list, and optioned outfielder Logan Schafer to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
