Game 3: TBD vs. RHP Jeff Samardzija (9-15, 4.51 ERA)
Again, Greinke was scheduled to start this game, but expect to finish off the regular season next weekend in Kansas City.
It is not known who will start for the Diamondbacks, because Lovullo is still deciding whether to move Greinke’s start back.
Samardzija has struck out over 200 batters for the third time in his career and has surpassed 200 innings pitched this season. The righty is the only Giants starter to reach the 200 innings plateau.
Samardzija went 4.1 innings and gave up four runs on five hits in his last start against the Dodgers and owns a 5.04 ERA this month. The 32-year-old has surrendered 29 home runs this season and has a 4.99 ERA away from pitcher-friendly AT&T Park.
