In the second half of the 2013 season, the Dodgers don’t go on losing streaks longer than two games. Thus, starter Zack Greinke is on the mound this morning and takes his 4-0 lifetime record against the Reds into the game today.

Opposing starter Mat Latos was efficient in his only start against the Dodgers, limiting them to just one earned run in 7.2 innings in late July. After giving regulars the night off during the finale against the Rockies, the Dodgers offense was out of sync last night as Mike Leake got into a nice rhythm after giving up a two-run home run in the first inning.

Even with the loss yesterday, the Dodgers saw their NL West lead remain 12 games and their magic number decrease to 11 with the Diamondbacks 3-0 loss to the Giants.

With Greinke and Latos on the mound, it should be a good pitcher’s duel. Here are the tweets of the game.
