Dodgers' Zack Greinke takes tough-luck loss to Astros on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Right-hander Zack Greinke was strong once again for the Dodgers on Saturday, but he wasn't strong enough to avoid the 3-1 loss at the hands of the Astros. Greinke allowed three runs on three hits over seven solid innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter. Greinke has not walked more than three batters in any of his 25 starts this season.

Greinke (13-3, 1.67 ERA) was bitten by the longball in this one, as two of the three runs he allowed came via the home run. He served up a solo home run to Luis Valbuena in the second inning and another solo shot to Jose Altuve in the sixth.

Greinke still owns the best ERA in the National League, and continues to be one of the top pitchers in the game.


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke tosses another gem Sunday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/16/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke continued his stellar season on Sunday against the Reds.

Greinke allowed just one run on six hits in seven strong inning. He struck out eight batters and limited his mistakes on the day to just one walk.

With the win, Greinke improved to 13-2 with a leage-best 1.63 ERA.


Dodgers' Zack Greinke blanks Nationals for six innings on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) Dodgers starter Zack Greinke returned to form in his outing against the Nationals on Tuesday. The right-hander fired six scoreless innings, scattering six hits, while walking one and striking out six. The Dodgers went on to win the game 5-0, with Greinke picking up his 12th win of the year.

Greinke (12-2) lowered his ERA to an MLB-best 1.65 with the fine outing. He was coming off an uncharacteristic six-run outing his last time out, but he was back to his normal, stingy self on Tuesday.


Dodgers' Zack Greinke uses bat to overcome rough start for win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/6/2015) Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke endured his worst start of the season on Thursday, but still managed to walk away with his 11th win of the season. Greinke allowed a season-high six runs on seven hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out eight, as the Dodgers topped the Phillies 10-8.

Greinke (11-2) watched his ERA lift to 1.71 with the shaky outing. He got off to a rough start in this one. After he was given a 3-0 lead following the top of the first, he allowed five runs--including a three-run shot by Dominic Brown--in the bottom half to give the Phillies a two-run lead.

The Dodgers were able to rally back, thanks in part to Greinke's work at the plate. He went 3 for 3 with a third-inning solo home run and also scored three times. It was his first home run of the year, and the fifth of his career. The bullpen was able to keep the Phillies at bay, allowing Greinke to pick up the win.

This was the first time Greinke had allowed more than two runs since he allowed five back on June 2 against the Rockies. Coming off his impressive scoreless innings streak, Greinke has now surrendered 10 runs over his past three starts.

"Little different-style game than you would think with Zack pitching today," said manager Don Mattingly, per MLB.com. "But our guys kept on going. After the first inning, Zack was pretty good. Showed what Zack's all about. He's not going to give in, say it's a bad day. He's going to keep pitching."


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke flashes dominance again in win


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke continued to show why he is one of the best -- if not the best -- pitchers in baseball with his outing on Friday.

Greinke tossed eight dominant innings, allowed two runs on five hits and struck out a cool eight batters. Over his last eight starts, he has 53 strikeouts and eight walks.

Greinke improved to 10-2 on the season with the win, but it wasn't all great as his ERA did rise to a still other-worldly 1.41 on the year.


Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw scratched; Greinke to fill in Friday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw was scratched from yet another scheduled start on Friday, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Kershaw is dealing with a lingering hip injury, which caused him to miss his originally scheduled start on Wednesday. He went through pre-game workouts that included throwing off the mound and flat ground, but was scratched shortly after playing catch on the flat surface.

Zack Greinke will fill in for Kershaw on Friday and take on the Angels in their cross-town matchup. He has a .036 ERA with 45 strikeouts and just two runs allowed over his last 50 2/3 innings.


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke has solid showing in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke set himself up for unreasonable expectations during his stretch of consecutive scoreless innings. 

On Sunday, the streak finally ended at a whopping 45 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings. Greinke tossed seven innings, allowed two runs, four hits and three walks. Ironically, it was Mets starter Jacob deGrom that reached on a fielder's choice in the third inning and brought a run around to score and snap Greinke's streak.

Greinke, who got a no-decision, still has MLB's most impressive ERA this season with a 1.37 mark.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2015) Dodgers co-ace Zack Greinke will return from paternity leave in time to start Sunday against the host Mets, per MLB.com.

Greinke has been on an incredible roll. He has not allowed a run in 43 2/3 innings and has lowered his ERA to an outrageous 1.30.


Dodgers recall RP Josh Ravin, place Greinke on paternity list


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/24/2015) The Dodgers recalled relief pitcher Josh Ravin from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed starting pitcher Zack Greinke on the paternity list on Friday, per the Los Angeles Times.

Ravin tossed seven innings with Los Angeles earlier this season, going 2-1 with a 6.43 ERA.

Greinke is not with the team, instead, he is with his family as he awaits the birth of his first child. He is eligible to return off the paternity list on Saturday.


Dodgers are hopeful Zack Greinke will pitch this weekend


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/24/2015) The Dodgers remain hopeful that star pitcher Zack Greinke will be able to make a start some time this weekend, according to the Orange County Register.

Greinke, who is in the midst of a 43 2/3 scoreless innings streak, is not with the team because he is with his family awaiting the birth of his first child. He was scheduled to throw on Friday.

“At this point, we’re hopeful that he’ll pitch here this weekend,” manager Don 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.”


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke not with team, unlikely to start Friday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/23/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke is not with the team and it is unlikely that he makes his scheduled start on Friday against the Mets, according to the team.

Greinke and his wife are expecting their first child. He is also torching every team he faces as of late -- he hasn't allowed an earned run in an eye-popping 43 2/3 innings.

It's a possibility that Greinke could pitch on Saturday, according to MLB.com.


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke runs scoreless innings streak to 43 2/3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke tossed eight scoreless innings during a 5-0 win Sunday against the Nationals, pushing his scoreless innings streak to 43 2/3.

The MLB record is held by former Dodgers starting pitcher Orel Hershiser, who threw 59 consecutive scoreless innings during the 1988 season.

The right-hander scattered three singles, while issuing one walk and striking out a season-best 11 batters. He threw 76 of 119 pitches for strikes.

Greinke (9-2) has won his last four starts and hasn't taken a loss in his last six starts. Sunday was the first time all season he struck out 10-plus batters. He lowered his season ERA to 1.30.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dodgers SP Zack Greinke runs shutout streak to 28 in win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) So much for Clayton Kershaw being the ace of the Dodgers staff. Zack Greinke has wrested that distinction away from the southpaw.

Greinke continued to be virtually unhittable Saturday against the albeit punchless Mets. He ran his scoreless streak to 28 innings by shutting out New York through seven and earning his sixth win in eight decisions.

The right-hander, who now boasts a ridiculous MLB-leading 1.48 ERA, allowed four hits with no walks and four strikeouts. He has issued three walks while fanning 23 during his scoreless stretch.

"Zack's got the weapons, he does his homework and he's able to execute," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, per MLB.com. "It's really as simple as that."

Dodgers' Zack Greinke goes eight innings in tough loss Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/14/2015) Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke was stellar in his start against the Padres on Saturday. He was saddled with his second loss of the season, however, as the Dodgers fell 2-1.

Greinke (5-2) twirled eight innings, allowing just two runs on eight hits. He struck out seven and walked one, needing an even 100 pitches for the complete game. He gave up an early run in the first inning, but the Dodgers were able to tie the game two innings later.

But the fatal blow came in the eighth, when Greinke served up a solo home run to Justin Upton, which proved to be the game-winner. Greinke has now failed to earn a win in seven straight starts.

Still, it was a strong outing for Greinke, who will take a 1.95 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Thursday at home against the Rangers.
