Zack Greinke fired eight innings of one-run ball in the Dodgers' 2-1 defeat of the Padres on Saturday.
It's a little odd that Dodgers manager Don Mattingly let his NLDS Game 2 starter go so deep in this one, but there weren't many high-stress pitches. The Cy Young Award candidate yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out eight. He'll finish the regular season with a 1.66 ERA. Oct 4 - 12:10 AM

Zack Greinke got a no-decision, allowing two runs in seven innings as the Dodgers lost in 12 innings to the Giants on Monday.

Greinke allowed a two-run double to Trevor Brown in the second inning, accounting for all of the damage. It was one of four hits he allowed along with three walks and seven strikeouts. He hadn't pitched since September 18 due to a sore calf. Greinke now has a terrific 1.68 ERA with a 0.85 WHIP and a 192/39 K/BB ratio over 214 2/3 innings. He'll wrap up his regular season with a home start against the Padres.

Zack Greinke (calf) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

That would put him on track to start on Monday in San Francisco. Greinke was scratched from a scheduled outing on Wednesday due to a sore calf, but it appears he'll be in line to make two starts next week.

Zack Greinke has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start against the Diamondbacks due to calf soreness.

It's unclear at this point when Greinke was injured, but the Dodgers are saying that they expect the right-hander to be OK for his next outing. The club should offer more later Wednesday, including who will start in Greinke's place.
Sep 23 - 2:58 PM

Zack Greinke picked up his 18th victory with seven-plus innings of two-run ball versus the Pirates on Friday.

Greinke allowed just a solo homer through seven before the first two batters reached to begin the eighth. The bullpen did a nice job of holding the top of the Pirates order to one run from there, allowing Greinke to notch his fifth straight victory.
Sep 19 - 2:18 AM

Zack Greinke delivered another masterful performance in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, scattering just three hits over eight shutout innings.

Greinke racked up eight strikeouts on the afternoon while walking a pair. The right-hander continues to build upon his resume for the National League Cy Young award, now sporting a 17-3 record to go along with his minuscule 1.61 ERA and 0.85 WHIP. He'll look to continue his dominance when he takes the hill against the Pirates on Saturday.
Sep 13 - 7:57 PM

Zack Greinke allowed three runs in six innings to snag his 16th win of the season on Monday against the Angels.

Greinke allowed a solo home run to C.J. Cron in the second inning and a two-run blast in the fifth to Kole Calhoun. The right-hander left after 89 pitches, presumably a self-administered hook. He gave up seven hits, walked none, and struck out five. With only a few weeks left in the season, Greinke's case for the NL Cy Young Award looks strong, carrying a 1.68 ERA with a 0.86 WHIP and a 174/32 K/BB ratio over 192 2/3 innings. He'll close out a road trip in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next.
Sep 8 - 1:04 AM

Zack Greinke earned his 15th win, limiting the Giants to one run over 7 1/3 innings on Tuesday.

The Giants finally broke through for a run in the eighth inning with three consecutive one-out singles, chasing Greinke from the game. The right-hander scattered five hits and a walk overall while striking out five. The current front-runner for the NL Cy Young Award, Greinke boasts a 15-3 record with a 1.59 ERA, a 0.85 WHIP, and a 169/32 K/BB ratio over 186 2/3 innings. He'll start on the road against the Angels next.
Sep 2 - 1:03 AM

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.
