When jodes mentioned in today's game preview that Seth Smith is 5-for-13 with three doubles against Zack Greinke, it got me wondering how other members of the Padres have fared against the Dodgers starter. I headed over to Greinke's matchup page at Baseball Reference, sought out everyone on the Padres' active roster, and came up with the following:

Yonder Alonso: 1-5, 2 K
Alexi Amarista: 1-7, RBI, K
Everth Cabrera: 1-3
Chris Denorfia: 2-5, K
Yasmani Grandal: 1-3, 2B
Jedd Gyorko: 1-6, BB, K
Chase Headley: 2-5, 2B, BB, RBI
Nick Hundley: 2-5, 2B, K
Ian Kennedy: 0-4, K
Tommy Medica: 0-2
Xavier Nady: 0-2, BB
Rene Rivera: 1-2
Seth Smith: 5-13, 3 2B
Will Venable: 1-13, 3B, BB, 7 K

Aside from Smith, there isn't a lot to write home about. Denorfia, Headley, and Hundley are batting .400 against Greinke in the fewest possible at-bats one can do that in, but that is balanced by the combined 3-for-26 (.115) mustered by the trifecta of Venable, Gyorko, and Amarista.
