(SportsNetwork. Nick Rimando USA Jersey .com) - Zack Greinke aims to become just baseballs second nine-game winner this season as the Los Angeles Dodgers wrap a four-game series on Sunday afternoon with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Tune in to all the action live on TSN2 beginning at 8pm et/5pm pt. Greinke carried a Major League-record string of 22 straight starts without allowing more than two earned runs into his last outing on Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds. Though that streak was halted, Greinke still won his third decision in a row thanks to a positive 6-3 outcome. The right-hander was charged with three runs on eight hits over 7 2/3 innings, matching a season high with 11 strikeouts while not issuing a walk. It marked the first time Greinke allowed more than two earned runs in a start since July 25, but he still improved to 8-1 with a 2.18 earned run average. He is tied with St. Louis Adam Wainwright for the most victories in the NL this season and one back of Torontos Mark Buehrle for the most in baseball. Greinke, 30, is 5-2 with a 5.29 ERA lifetime against the Pirates, who counter with Edinson Volquez. Volquez is 2-3 with a 2.86 ERA in seven previous meetings with the Dodgers and spent a brief stint with the club last season. Acquired from the San Diego Padres midseason, the righty went 0-2 with a 4.18 ERA in six games (5 starts) with Los Angeles. Volquez picked up his second win of the season with a solid outing on May 22 versus Washington, but struggled with his command on Tuesday against the New York Mets in a no-decision. The 30-year-old yielded four hits and a walked a season-high five batters over five innings, but did limit the damage to just two runs. "It was a challenge for (Volquez) but he kept us in the game," Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said of his starter. Volquez is 2-4 on the year with a 4.30 ERA and will try to cool off the Dodgers bats. Los Angeles saw its offense erupt on Saturday for a 12-2 win, thanks in large part to Hanley Ramirez. He went 4-for-4 at the plate and hit a pair of homers while matching career highs with five RBI and four runs scored. "Hanley has found something and I hope it continues. Everything fell our way today," said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. Matt Kemp, Justin Turner and Drew Butera each drove in two runs for the Dodgers, who snapped a three-game losing skid. After flirting with a no-hitter in his last start, Hyun-Jin Ryu yielded two runs on 10 hits over six solid innings to earn the win. In the worst outing of his young career, Brandon Cumpton was tagged for 11 runs -- 10 earned -- on 11 hits and two walks over just 3 2/3 innings. "His (Cumpton) fastball command wasnt what weve seen from him in the past. It was a bad day for him," said Hurdle. Jose Tabata collected three hits and Jordy Mercer had an RBI for Pittsburgh, which had snapped a nine-game slide in Los Angeles by winning the first two games of this series.

Against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, Elias put the entire package together against one of the leagues strongest lineups.Turin, Italy (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Pogba produced a dazzling performance at Juventus Stadium on Sunday to lead the hosts to a 2-0 victory over Chievo. Juventus was held in check for the opening period, but Pogba looked the most likely player to break the deadlock after conjuring a number of fine dribbling displays in the first half. The Frenchman eventually was rewarded for his creativity at the hour mark when he collected a square pass just outside the penalty area, eased past a couple of Chievo defenders and uncorked a lethal left-footed strike that found the bottom corner. Pogba nearly doubled Juves advantage in spectacular fashion in the 74th minute when he got on the end of a cross into the box, brought the delivery down with an acrobatic touch and punched a quick shot on target. His attempt was parried away but only as far as Stephan Lichtsteiner, who was arriving to slam home the rebound. Juventus cruised the rest of the way to move to 49 points on the season, extending its lead at the Seriie A summit to seven points following Romas 1-1 draw at Fiorentina. Omar Gonzalez USA Jersey. Roma fell behind at the Stadio Artemio Franchi as Mario Gomez beat the offside trap in the 19th minute to redirect a shot into the bottom corner from close range.

Inter Milans slide down the Serie A table continued Sunday as the club succumbed to a 90th-minute strike from Emiliano Moretti to suffer a 1-0 home loss to Torino. Hellas Verona, meanwhile, needed just a goal from Javier Saviola in the 53rd minute to collect a 1-0 victory over Atalanta and pull further away from the relegation zone.
