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.

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.
Aug 3 - 9:16 PM

Zack Greinke struck out nine while allowing one run over seven innings in a 7-1 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Three batters into the game the Cardinals already had pushed across a run, but it would be the last given up by Greinke on this night. The right-hander gave up just four hits, two of them in that first inning, while walking one in the outing. He's now won four straight decisions to improve to 13-4 with a 2.84 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 149/27 K/BB ratio. A meeting with the lowly Giants is on deck for Friday.
Jul 30 - 12:07 AM

Zack Greinke allowed two earned runs, five hits and no walks with six strikeouts over eight innings in a win against the Braves on Monday.

The All-Star bounced back nicely after a subpar effort by his standards last time out. He has won four straight decisions, and he has lost just once since May 27. Greinke is 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA over 27 innings across four starts in July, his best ERA of any month. He'll be back at it Saturday afternoon in St. Louis opposite the ice-cold Mike Leake.
Jul 25 - 1:45 AM

Zack Greinke let in three runs in five innings and had to settle for a no-decision as his team lost to the Reds in extra innings on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks' ace didn't have his best stuff working for him tonight. He allowed eight base hits and issued three walks while striking out three in the ballgame. He gave up a solo home run to All Star shortstop Zack Cozart in the third inning. Greinke was not able to add to his 11 wins, but at least he didn't add to his four losses either. The former Cy Young Award winner wields a stellar 2.97 ERA and 1.05 WHIP through 19 starts. He has an elite 134/26 strikeout-to-walk ratio across 121 1/3 innings of work and remains one of the best pitchers in baseball at the age of 33.
Jul 20 - 12:12 AM

Zack Greinke allowed just four hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings while punching out seven batters for his 11th win of the season Friday against Cincinnati.

The All-Star threw 67 of his 107 pitches for strikes, dropping his ERA to 2.86. He rolls into the break with three consecutive victories, lowering his ERA in each of the outings. Since he'll have three full days to rest before Tuesday's All-Star Game in Miami, you can expect to see the Arizona right-hander work at least an inning, and he could be on the short list of candidates to start for the NL.
Jul 8 - 1:47 AM

Zack Greinke allowed just two earned runs, three hits and no walks with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the Rockies on Saturday.

Greinke moved to 10-4 while lowering his ERA to 3.05. He has won each of his past six home starts, and he is a perfect 8-0 with a 2.67 ERA with 12 walks and 82 strikeouts over 64 innings across 10 home starts. The opposition is also hitting just .195 against Greinke at Chase Field this season.
Jul 2 - 4:03 AM

Zack Greinke pitched five innings of one-run ball to beat the Phillies on Monday.

Greinke wasn't at his best in this one, but he had the right opponent; the Phillies started just one guy (Aaron Altherr) with an .800 OPS or 10 homers. Greinke struck out five and walked three while throwing 102 pitches to get his 15 outs. He's now 9-4 with a 3.08 ERA.
Jun 26 - 10:59 PM

Zack Greinke allowed four earned runs, nine hits and no walks over 7 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Colorado.

Greinke salvaged the stat line with seven strikeouts in the 99-pitch outing, but he now has three non-quality starts in a row. He'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Phillies in a very favorable matchup.
Jun 21 - 12:40 AM

Zack Greinke pitched well in a no-decision against the Tigers on Tuesday, scattering five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Greinke allowed five runs in the sixth inning, though all of them were unearned. He struck out four and walked two on the night. The 33-year-old hurler is enjoying a resurgent 2017 season, registering a 3.00 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 104/19 K/BB ratio across 90 innings. He'll draw a difficult assignment his next time out, taking on the Rockies at Coors Field on Tuesday.
Jun 14 - 12:04 AM

Diamondbacks activated RHP Zack Greinke from the paternity leave list.

Greinke was away for a few days but didn't miss a start. His next outing is scheduled for Tuesday in Detroit.
Jun 11 - 1:40 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Zack Greinke on the paternity leave list.

Greinke just pitched Wednesday night, so he won't miss a turn in the Diamondbacks' rotation while he is away from the club. Silvino Bracho has been called up to serve as an extra reliever for the next few days.
Jun 8 - 2:34 PM

Zack Greinke won after allowing three runs in five innings Wednesday against the Padres.

Greinke figured to do better than this against the game's worst offense, but at least he did get eight strikeouts and his eighth win.
