Zack Greinke records four Ks in one inning, cruises past Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke recorded a rare feat while picking up his 12th win of the season Friday night against the Giants in San Francisco. He became the fifth pitcher in franchise history to record four strikeouts in an inning.

Greinke struck out Hector Sanchez swinging and Tim Lincecum looking. He struck out Hunter Pence swinging, but the pitch was low and got past A.J. Ellis, as he reached safely at first. Finally, Greinke struck out Gregor Blanco. The pitch was low and got past Ellis, but the catcher was able to throw Blanco out in time at first base.

Greinke allowed four hits and one walk while striking out 10 in seven shutout frames in an 8-1 victory. Of his 106 pitches, 65 were strikes.

Greinke has recorded double-digit strikeouts four times this season. He owns a 2.74 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 21 starts. His next start will come Thursday at home against Atlanta.


Zack Greinke struggles with his command in loss to Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke had some issues with his command against the Cardinals on Saturday, dropping to 11-6 on the season. The right-hander permitted four runs on six hits and five walks while striking out three over 5 2/3 innings of a 4-2 defeat.

Over his last two starts covering 12 2/3 innings, Greinke has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 2.90 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 20 starts (124 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Friday against the Giants in San Francisco.

Zack Greinke eyeing upcoming FA market with opt-out looming


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke could decide to opt out of his contract after the 2015 season based upon the contracts signed by upcoming free-agent pitchers Jon Lester and Max Scherzer, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"What happens with Lester and Scherzer will say a lot," Greinke said Monday.

Greinke will have three years and $71 million remaining on his contract after the 2015 season, but he could be willing to look for a bigger payday, either from his own team or on the market, if Lester and Scherzer can cash in during the upcoming offseason. In a season-and-a-half with the Dodgers, Greinke is 26-9 with a 2.67 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 4.04 K:BB ratio, with 275 strikeouts in 296 1/3 innings.


Dodgers set post-break rotation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) The Dodgers announced the scheduled rotation plans Saturday once the All-Star break has completed, with Dan Haren in line to start Friday. Haren will be followed by Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu.


Zack Greinke loses last start before All-Star break


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) In a battle of All-Star pitchers Wednesday, Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer outdueled Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke in a 4-1 win for Detroit. Greinke allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks, while striking out eight in seven innings.

Greinke (11-5) got off to a rough start Wednesday. He allowed a leadoff triple to Austin Jackson before Ian Kinsler drove him home with an RBI single. Don Kelly added a two-out RBI single in the first inning to give Detroit an early 2-0 lead.

Greinke would settle down, though, retiring seven straight batters after Kelly's RBI single. However, he ran into more trouble in the fourth inning, as he allowed singles to the first three batters. The last single was an RBI hit from Nick Castellanos.

Greinke would toss three scoreless innings to finish his day, but the Dodgers could not rally against Scherzer, who allowed just one run in seven innings. Greinke lost for the second time in four starts.

Greinke will not make another start before the All-Star break. The team has not yet announced its post-break rotation plans.

Zack Greinke gets win thanks to late rally


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke earned his second win in a row Thursday, as the offense rallied late in a 3-2 win over the Rockies.

Greinke tossed eight strong innings in the start, though he actually faltered late and looked like he might not get the win. He allowed one run in the eighth inning to tie the game, 2-2, but the Dodgers offense went back up in the ninth to get him the win.

Greinke allowed two runs -- one earned -- on nine hits in the outing. He struck out eight batters and walked two in his eight innings of work, while throwing 107 pitches.

Greinke is now 11-4 on the season, while he lowered his ERA to 2.66. He ranks seventh in the National League in ERA heading into his next start, set for Wednesday in Detroit.

Greinke (9-4) was incredibly hittable against his former team, giving up 11 hits for the second time in his last four starts. After entering June with a 2.18 ERA, Greinke now owns a 2.89 ERA and 101:20 K:BB ratio in 96 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Cardinals Saturday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Greinke (9-3) cruised through five innings without giving up a run, but the Rockies were able to plate one on a sacrifice fly in the sixth. The pitcher had went three starts in June without picking up a win before doing so Tuesday. Greinke owns a 2.57 ERA and 97:20 K:BB ratio in 91 innings. He'll take on the Royals Monday.


Zack Greinke rights himself too late in loss to Reds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke was sensational Thursday in Cincinnati - after the first three hitters he faced.

The only problem was that those two batters singled, homered and doubled, which was enough to lower his record to 8-3. The blast was courtesy of Todd Frazier.

Greinke settled down after the first inning to shut out the Reds through six, facing just one batter over the minimum in his last five innings. He finished having surrendered two runs on four hits with one walk and three strikeouts.

The Dodgers co-ace has struggled a bit in recent starts. He is 0-2 and has yielded 12 earned runs in 26 2/3 innings over his last four starts. He will try to turn it around Tuesday against Colorado.


Zack Greinke strikes out six in no-decision vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke wasn't a factor in Saturday's decision after giving up four runs (three earned) on 11 hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out six in his team's 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Rockies.

Greinke saw a remarkable run of starts with two or fewer earned runs end in late May, and he's given up three earned runs or more in each of his last three starts. All four runs came home on RBI singles. Grienke owns a 2.62 ERA and 89:17 K:BB ratio in 79 innings going into Thursday's scheduled start against the Reds.

Over his last three starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Greinke has allowed eight earned runs. He owns a 2.50 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP through his first 12 starts (72 innings). He will look to get back on track Saturday at Colorado. He is 4-1 with a 1.67 ERA in six starts away from home.

Greinke saw his ERA rise ever-so-slightly, to 2.18 with this outing. He earned the win to push his record to 8-1 heading into his next outing, set for Sunday against the Pirates.
