Greinke Rehab Start So-So


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Milwaukee pitcher Zach Greinke pitched 2 2-3 innings, giving up three hits and two runs with a walk and a two strikeouts in a rehab start Sunday at Triple-A Nashville.

The right-hander started the season on the disabled list for his new team because of a broken rib.

"In the first inning my control was a lot better than later on," said Greinke, who got the first four batters he faced to groundout then struck out two in the second inning.

"The off-speed wasn't great, but I was locating, and my fastball was crisp. I just lost a little bit in the third inning and late in the second inning."

In the third, he gave up two runs on back-to-back triples and a sacrifice fly.

Greinke threw 54 pitches and said he will need at least one more minor league start before joining the Brewers.
