Giants offense falls back to earth in loss to Greinke, Diamondbacks

Greinke and a bullpen that statistically is worse than the Braves' cut the Giants to size in a 4-3 Diamondbacks victory over the Giants and Johnny Cueto, who lost the strike zone in a four-run fifth inning he did not survive.

Johnny Cueto faces Greinke in a rematch of a 4-2 Giants victory in Phoenix on May 12, when Greinke was struggling to get acclimated to pitching in the desert and Arizona fans were saying, "We paid $206 million for this?" Three starts ago, he allowed nine runs and was chased before the end of the second inning at Fenway Park. Greinke still has much confidence pitching against the Giants.
