Mets-Dodgers Preview (The Associated Press)

While Zack Greinke's scoreless innings streak from his last three starts is on the doorstep of establishing a new single-season best, Matt Harvey's last three haven't been all that far off the pace of MLB's ERA leader. The standout right-handers meet Saturday night in Los Angeles for an encore to Friday's duel with the New York Mets seeking a series win over the Dodgers. After limiting Miami to four hits in 7 2-3 innings of Sunday's 2-0 road win, Greinke (6-2, 1.58 ERA) hasn't allowed a run in 20 2-3 innings.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- - Noah Syndergaard is growing up quickly in the major leagues. Syndergaard held the Los Angeles Dodgers to just two hits, and batterymate Kevin Plawecki drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to help the Mets start their six-game road trip with a 2-1 victory. ''It was an unbelievable experience, right from the get-go when I stepped out there,'' Syndergaard said.

Brewers-Reds Preview (The Associated Press)

The NL Central-worst Milwaukee Brewers aren't showing signs of slowing down offensively as they attempt to reel in the fourth-place Cincinnati Reds. The Brewers hope to keep swinging hot bats as they try to extend their longest winning streak in 15 months Saturday night at Great American Ball Park. Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez had three hits apiece Friday to help Milwaukee (34-48) win its sixth in a row and match a season-high run total in a series-opening 12-1 victory.

Marlins-Cubs Preview (The Associated Press)

Justin Bour is doing his best impersonation of Giancarlo Stanton as the Miami Marlins continue to win without arguably the top slugger in the majors. The rookie has homered in each of Miami's four straight victories and the last three proved to be game-winning shots for the Marlins, who look to match their season-high win streak Saturday night against the Chicago Cubs. Bour had a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over San Francisco, hit a walk-off three-run blast in a 6-5 win the next day and put Miami (35-46) ahead with another three-run shot in a 5-4 victory Thursday to complete the sweep.
