Just counted 30 times. Without counting injuries, 29.
Lorenzo beat Rossi 22 times. Without injuries 18 times. Consider that 9 (half) of the times Lorenzo beat Rossi were AFTER his injury.
Pre Rossi injury stats would then be Rossi 27 vs. Lorenzo 9.
I'd say that injury really did a number on Rossi, it'll be interesting to see if he's on form like he was before the injury for 2013.
*after counting twice, I still haven't been able to account for the 53'rd race between those three seasons. I won't bother again, but you get the picture.
