The red-hot Giants pulled to within one game of the division leading Dodgers in a game that was not close from the time the Giants’ second batter of the game came to the plate.

Greinke pitched seven shutout innings on the way to an 8-1 win the last time he faced the Giants, on July 25 in San Francisco. The best team money can buy needs a repeat of that effort tonight.
