Alfredo Simon faces Zack Greinke in duel of eight-game winners
Eight-game winners Alfredo Simon and Zack Greinke face off as the Reds face the Dodgers in the series finale on Thursday afternoon at Great American Ball Park.
Dodgers vs Reds
Alfredo Simon 31 | P
8 – 3 ERA 3.15
0 – 1 ERA 9.00 (Career vs LAD)
Simon allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings to beat the Phillies on Saturday. He is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA (6 ER in 6 IP) in three career appearances (one start) against the Dodgers.
Zack Greinke 21 | P
8 – 2 ERA 2.62
5 – 1 ERA 2.73 (Career vs CIN)
Probably should throw out the last start, an 11-hitter over seven innings, because it came at Coors Field, where Greinke deploys a damage-control strategy. All things considered, he’s been the club’s best starter this year.
