Zack Greinke poured in a strong start in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Reds, tossing seven shutout innings.

Greinke scattered four hits while striking out nine and walking two. None of the hits went for extra-bases. With his strong seven innings, he improved to 14-3 on the season. He backs that record with a 1.61 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 164/31 K/BB ratio across 179 1/3 innings. A home start against the in-state rival Giants crops up next on Greinke's schedule.
Aug 27 - 3:39 PM

Zack Greinke took the loss in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Astros on Saturday, allowing three runs on three hits over seven innings.

Greinke fanned five without walking a batter, but his strong start wasn't quite enough to prevent him from falling to a still fantastic 13-3. Two of the three runs came home on solo homers, with Luis Valbuena and Jose Altuve dinging him for solo shots in the second and sixth innings, respectively. Greinke remains a top NL Cy Young contender thanks to a 1.67 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 155/29 K/BB ratio through 172 1/3 innings. He'll look to return to the win column when he faces off with the Reds in a road start on Thursday afternoon.
Aug 23 - 12:17 AM

Zack Greinke delivered another dominant performance in Sunday's victory over the Reds, scattering six hits over seven innings of one-run ball.

Greinke punched out eight on the afternoon while walking just one. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Billy Hamilton in the fifth inning. Oh, and Greinke also swatted his second home run of the season, a solo shot in the fifth that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He'll carry a ridiculous 1.63 ERA and 0.87 WHIP into Sunday's start against the Astros in Houston.
Aug 16 - 6:57 PM

Zack Greinke held the Nationals scoreless over six innings, improving to 12-2 on Tuesday.

Greinke was inefficient, as he needed 109 pitches to get through six frames, but he was also effective, limiting the Nationals to six hits (all singles) and a walk while striking out six. The current favorite to win the NL Cy Young award, Greinke owns a 1.65 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP, and a 142/28 K/BB ratio over 158 1/3 innings. He'll look to continue a new scoreless streak to finish their current homestand against the Reds.
Aug 12 - 1:16 AM

Zach Greinke turned in an uncustomary tough outing in a 10-8 win over the Phillies on Thursday afternoon, allowing six runs on seven hits over six innings.

Greinke put together a 45 2/3 inning scoreless streak last month, but that felt like a distant memory in the first inning of Thursday afternoon's contest with the Phillies. The boys from the City of Brotherly Love would score five times off Greinke in the first inning, highlighted by a three-run Domonic Brown home run. The rough open would be more than negated by six Dodger runs in the first two innings, though, and Greinke managed to pick up a win despite posting one of his worst starts of the season. He improved to 11-2 with the victory and holds a 1.71 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 136/27 K/BB ratio across 152 1/3 innings. A home showdown with the Nationals is up next on his schedule.
Aug 6 - 5:07 PM

Zack Greinke pitched eight innings of two-run ball to beat the Angels on Friday.

Greinke gave up runs for the second straight outing, but it wasn't really so bad. He allowed five hits, walked one and struck out eight in improving to 10-2. His ERA jumped from 1.37 to 1.41.
Aug 1 - 3:20 AM

Zack Greinke's consecutive scoreless innings streak was stopped at 45 2/3 in Sunday's no-decision loss to the Mets in which he allowed two runs in seven innings.

Greinke still pitched well, but Jacob deGrom was even better. Greinke allowed four hits and three walks while striking out three. The Mets pushed across a run in the third on deGrom's fielder's choice ground out, which ended the streak, and again in the sixth when Michael Conforto was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Greinke has been baseball's best pitcher thus far, owning a 1.37 ERA with a 0.83 WHIP and a 120/24 K/BB ratio over 138 1/3 innings. He'll look to start a new scoreless innings streak in his next start, a home bid versus the Angels.
Jul 26 - 4:51 PM

Dodgers activated RHP Zack Greinke from the paternity leave list.

He'll start on Sunday versus the Mets. Greinke will be looking to extend his 43 2/3 scoreless innings streak.
Jul 26 - 11:58 AM

Zack Greinke will return to the Dodgers rotation on Sunday against the Mets.

Greinke had been scheduled to pitch on Friday, but was away on paternity leave to attend the birth of his first child. He'll take the hill on Sunday with extra rest, looking to extend his 43 2/3 scoreless inning streak.
Jul 24 - 10:34 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly confirmed Friday that Zack Greinke will return to start against the Mets on either Saturday or Sunday.

Greinke was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday to be with his wife for the birth of the couple's first child. He'll look to extend his impressive 43 2/3 scoreless inning streak when he takes the hill.
Jul 24 - 5:39 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Zack Greinke on the paternity leave list.

Ian Thomas will start in Greinke's place on Friday with the latter attending the birth of his first child. The Dodgers are hopeful that Greinke will rejoin the rotation at some point over the weekend.
Jul 24 - 2:06 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Thursday that he hopes Zack Greinke will be able to pitch at some point this weekend against the Mets.

Greinke was scratched from Friday's scheduled start against the Mets in order to attend the birth of his first child. "At this point, we’re hopeful that he’ll pitch here this weekend," Mattingly said. "You never know what might happen with the birth of a child. We’ll see how it goes. We feel there’s a potential of that." Ian Thomas is filling in for Greinke on Friday and Zach Lee is expected to start Saturday. Brett Anderson (Achilles) could be ready to go on Sunday, but the Dodgers could be cautious and push him back if Greinke can pitch by then. Greinke, of course, is in the midst of a 43 2/3 innings scoreless streak.
Jul 24 - 10:25 AM

Zack Greinke is away from the team for the birth of his first child and is unlikely to pitch Friday against the Mets.

The Dodgers have yet to make an official decision. It's unclear how long he'll be away from the team or who would replace him, but there should be more clarity soon.
Jul 23 - 4:35 PM

Zack Greinke continued his run of dominance in a win against the Nationals on Sunday, hurling eight shutout innings.

Greinke has now racked up 43 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings. The Nationals scratched out only three hits and a walk while the right-hander struck them out 11 times. Greinke last allowed a run in the eighth inning on June 13 against the Padres. He now carries a terrific 9-2 record with a 1.30 ERA, 0.82 WHIP, and 117/21 K/BB ratio in 131 1/3 innings. He'll try to bring his scoreless streak into the 50 inning threshold in his next start in New York against the Mets.
