Zack Greinke wasn’t sharp versus his former team Monday, permitting three runs while walking five batters over five-plus innings in a loss to the Dodgers.
Greinke is lucky that his line wasn’t worse, as he just didn’t look like himself in this one. He served up a pair of home runs, and it’s the first time since August 15 of 2014 that he walked five batters in a game. The second longball came off the bat of Austin Barnes after Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo decided to send Greinke back out for the sixth inning even though he’d already exceeded 100 pitches and was clearly struggling. Greinke had a big bounce-back regular season, but he struggled in both postseason outings, allowing seven runs with a 5/6 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 frames. Oct 10 - 1:59 AM

Zack Greinke gave up four runs and six hits in 3 2/3 innings on Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' Wild Card Game win over the Rockies.

Greinke was excellent over the first three innings, giving up no hits. Then the fourth inning happened, and things got messy. It wasn't like Greinke was getting blooped, either -- he gave up several hard-hit extra-base hits in a row before being pulled by manager Torey Lovullo for Andrew Chafin. Fortunately, the Arizona bats did enough to back him up. Greinke will likely be the Game 3 starter for Arizona in the NLDS on Tuesday.
Oct 5 - 12:12 AM

Zack Greinke was lifted after allowing two runs in four innings Friday against the Royals.

Just a little tuneup for Greinke ahead of next week's Wild Card Game. He finishes the regular season 17-7 with a 3.20 ERA and 215 strikeouts. That's the second highest K total of his career, behind only his Cy Young season of 2009.
Sep 29 - 11:39 PM

Zack Greinke's next start has been pushed from Wednesday against the Giants to Friday against the Royals.

That lines him up to start next week's National League Wild Card Game on normal rest. Braden Shipley will take the mound on Wednesday versus San Francisco.
Sep 26 - 6:27 PM

Zack Greinke will start the National League Wild Card Game for the Diamondbacks.

Robbie Ray has been fantastic this season (Arizona's entire rotation has, really), but it's no surprise that manager Torey Lovullo will go with Greinke in the win-or-go-home affair. Greinke is currently scheduled to pitch Wednesday versus the Giants, but he could be pushed back a couple days so that he'd be on regular rest on October 4 for the Wild Card Game.
Sep 25 - 7:00 PM

Zack Greinke was pulled after allowing eight runs in four innings Friday against the Marlins.

It's the first time all year that he's allowed more than six runs. He have given up seven total in his previous five starts. Tonight's outing took his ERA from 2.87 to 3.18, his highest mark since early June. He's slated to face the Giants next week in his final start of the regular season.
Sep 23 - 2:15 AM

Zack Greinke allowed two hits and a walk across eight scoreless innings with eight strikeouts Saturday in San Francisco.

Greinke threw 70 of his 107 pitches for strikes. He has been on fire in the month of September, lasting at least seven innings in each outing while going 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA. He also has won each of his past three decisions over his past five outings dating back to Aug. 19.
Sep 17 - 1:10 AM

Zack Greinke pitched seven innings of two-run ball Monday in a no-decision versus the Rockies.

Greinke struck out six and walked none. He's allowed four runs total in his last three starts, and he's suffered no ill effects after losing his personal catcher, Jeff Mathis, last month.
Sep 12 - 1:44 AM

Zack Greinke allowed just one earned run, four hits and a walk with six strikeouts across seven innings in a no-decision in Tuesday's road start against the Dodgers.

Greinke threw 67 of his 101 pitches for strikes to post his third consecutive quality start. He has also struck out at least four batters in each of his past nine outings. He'll look to keep up the good times in his next scheduled start Monday against the Rockies.
Sep 6 - 4:04 AM

Zack Greinke picked up his 16th victory of the season on Thursday, limiting the Dodgers to just one run on four hits over six frames.

The right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. The only blemish on his day was an RBI double off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez in the second inning. Now 16-6 on the season, Greinke will carry a 3.08 ERA and 1.07 WHIP into a rematch against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Aug 31 - 7:20 PM

Zack Greinke picked up win No. 15 after allowing three runs -- two earned -- in 6 2/3 innings Friday against the Giants.

Greinke had to throw to someone other than the injured Jeff Mathis for the first time all year in this one, but it didn't seem to bother him at all. He struck out four and walked none on the night. He'll have a tougher challenge against the Dodgers next time out.
Aug 26 - 1:13 AM

Zack Greinke gave up five runs -- four earned -- in four innings and was charged with a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

He got singled to death in the fourth inning when all five runs scored. Five singles, a walk and an error enabled the Twins to bat around in dink-and-dunk fashion. Greinke struck out four batters, issued four walks and surrendered seven hits in total. He falls to 14-6 with an excellent 3.16 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. His 178:37 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 159 2/3 innings is one of the best in the league.
Aug 19 - 11:09 PM

Zack Greinke shut out the Astros for 6 2/3 innings and struck out nine to win Monday.

Jorge De La Rosa, Archie Bradley and Fernando Rodney finished the 2-0 shutout. Greinke won for the first time in three starts this month and improved to 14-5 with a 3.01 ERA for the season. He'll face the Twins in Minnesota next time out.
Aug 15 - 1:29 AM

Zack Greinke lost to the Dodgers after giving up three runs in 6 2/3 innings Wednesday.

It was one run through six before the Dodgers put together a two-run rally with two doubles and a single in the seventh. Greinke has lost both of his starts versus his previous team this year, allowing a total of eight runs in 11 1/3 innings. He's 13-3 against everyone else.
Aug 10 - 12:40 AM

Zack Greinke surrendered six runs in six-plus innings Thursday in a no-decision versus the Cubs.

Greinke, who returned after an early rain delay, allowed two runs through five before giving up three in the sixth. He was sent back out for the seventh anyway, only to be pulled after an infield single. That runner eventually came around to score, making this the first time all season that Greinke has allowed six runs. He still struck out eight and walked none for the day.
