Greinke was okay in his last outing where he was able to put in a quality start while picking up his sixth win of the season against the Los Angeles Angels. He went 6.1 innings giving up seven hits, three earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out five and walked two.
Greinke owns a solid strikeout (9.50 K/9) to walk (1.90 BB/9) rate, but his problems have stemmed from the long ball where he owns a 1.60 HR/9 and 17.0% HR/FB ratio. His end result has been an okay 3.90 ERA and 3.99 FIP.
Arizona has been playing mediocre baseball in the past week as they have won three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .242/.323/.415 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.
Musgrove was roughed up in his last outing as he was tagged with second loss of the season against the Cincinnati Reds. He could only make it 4.1 innings giving up eight hits, six earned runs, and one home run while he struck out six and walked one.
In five starts, Musgrove owns a solid strikeout (8.90 K/9) to walk (1.84 BB/9) rate, while he has done a solid job limiting the long ball (0.92 HR/9). His .329 BABIP is a tad unlucky, and when that regresses we should see his 3.68 ERA fall more towards his 3.36 FIP.
Pittsburgh has been playing mediocre baseball in the past week as they have won three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .250/.311/.388 to go with 14 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.

Greinke has pitched his worst month of baseball where he owns a 4.63 ERA and a slash line of .281/.343/.531. He also owns a 5.66 ERA on the road. Musgrove had a bad outing, but I expect him to outduel Greinke as Pittsburgh outlasts Arizona
