Greinke (10-4) gave up five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six through six innings to take the loss against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Greinke forced 12 swinging strikes but allowed too many hits to be effective including a two-run home run to Paul Goldschmidt in the third inning. The 35-year-old allowed his first runs since June 24, and he has only walked two batters in his last 40.1 innings. Greinke will make his next start Friday against the Brewers at Chase Field.
Greinke (personal) is listed as the starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Greinke bypassed the All-Star Game earlier this week while tending to the personal issue, but there was never much doubt the matter would impact his availability for the start of the second half. Since being pummeled for a season-high seven runs and giving up four home runs on Opening Day, Greinke has resembled the ace of yore with a 10-2 record, 2.28 ERA and 0.87 WHIP over his subsequent 18 starts.
Greinke will not participate in Tuesday's All-Star Game due to a personal matter, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.
Manager Torey Lovullo said Greinke's absence will likely shake up his rotation for the road series against St. Louis that begins Friday but would not divulge the order of the rotation. Greinke was tentatively expected to start the series opener.
Greinke (10-3) earned the win Friday after holding the Rockies scoreless over seven innings, recording nine strikeouts and allowing only four hits.
Greinke was dominant against a tough Rockies lineup to pick up his second straight win. The right-hander did not issue any free passes as he tallied his 2,543th strikeout, surpassing Bartolo Colon (2,535) and Javier Vazquez (2,536) to move into 32nd on the career list. Greinke has now earned 10 wins before the All-Star break for the fourth straight year. The 35-year-old will carry a 2.73 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 108:15 K:BB into his appearance at this year's All-Star Game.
Greinke (9-3) allowed five hits and struck out six over seven scoreless innings for the win Saturday against the Giants.
Greinke scattered those five hits and was never threatened in the start, the 16th time in 18 outings that he's pitched at least six innings. The Diamondbacks' ace lowered his ERA to an All-Star-worthy 2.90 and will make his next start Friday at home against Colorado.
