Zack Greinke wins despite shaky start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke pulled out a win Saturday against the Mets.

Greinke allowed four runs, three earned, on nine hits over seven innings. He struck out four and walked one during the outing. Greinke got off to a nice start, throwing three scoreless innings to open the game. He was tagged for three runs in the fourth inning. Greinke allowed a single and a runner reached on an error, putting two men on. Juan Lagares then belted a three-run shot to left center. Only two runs were charged to Greinke. A Lucas Duda solo shot in the sixth gave Greinke his third earned run.

The Dodgers got to Jacob deGrom, giving Greinke the win. He improved to 13-8. He’ll take on the Padres in his next start.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

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.

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 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.
