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 Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) As expected, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke was reinstated from the paternity list Sunday, the team announced. Greinke will start Sunday's game at the New York Mets.

The team also recalled pitcher Yimi Garcia from Triple-A. Garcia produced a 4.10 ERA over 37 1/3 innings this season.


Dodgers sizzling SP Zack Greinke set to start Sunday


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
(7/15/2015) The Dodgers announced All-Star pitcher Clayton Kershaw will start the first game after the All-Star break on Friday against the Nationals. He will be followed in the three-game series by Mike Bolsinger and All-Star Zack Greinke.

Greinke and Kershaw pitched in Tuesday's All-Star game. Greinke started the game and allowed a solo home run to Mike Trout, but it was the only hit and run he allowed in two innings. He struck out four and walked one.

Kershaw did not do as well as his teammate. He took the loss after allowing two runs on three hits and one walk in one inning of work. He struck out one.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Greinke had appeared in two previous All Star Games in relief appearances. He allowed a leadoff home run on Tuesday, the only hit he surrendered on the night. It was his first career All Star hit and run allowed.

Greinke walked one and struck out four, doubling his career All Star strikeout total. 

Greinke became the first pitcher to strike out four in an All Star Game since Pedro Martinez in 1999. He's the first NL pitcher to strike out four since Lee Smith in 1987.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/10/2015) Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke blanked Phillies for eight innings on Thursday, striking out eight batters along the way.

He allowed just one base runner all night, a lead-off single to Ryan Howard in the second inning. Otherwise, Greinke was perfect in the 6-0 victory. He needed just 94 pitches to get through the eighth.

Greinke (8-2) continued his string of recent dominance on Thursday, as he extended his scoreless streak to 35 2/3 innings. He hasn't allowed an earned run since June 13, as his ERA sits at a league-best 1.39.

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."

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

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.

Greinke went 6 2/3 innings in his team's 4-2 loss to the Cardinals. Greinke, though, was solid as he struck out eight batters and allowed just one earned run.

Greinke (5-1) has a 1.92 ERA with 68 strikeouts in 79 2/3 innings this season.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Greinke only struck out two and walked one over six innings of work Tuesday. He received a no-decision for his effort. The five runs broke a five-consecutive start streak of only allowing one run or less.

Tuesday's start was Greinke's first outing this season in which he did not earn a quality start for his effort. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday against the Cardinals.


Dodgers' Zack Greinke strikes out nine in no-decision vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke wasn't a factor in the decision on Wednesday, allowing one earned run on three hits and two walks in six innings while striking out nine in his team's 3-2 loss to the Braves.

Greinke, whose only run allowed came on a third-inning homer by Cameron Maybin, also went 1 for 2 at the plate and stole a base for the first time this season and the fourth time in 244 career at-bats. He has yet to be caught on the basepaths.

Greinke owns a 1.48 ERA and 58:14 K:BB ratio in 67 innings. Although he's allowed just one run in each of his last four outings, he hasn't recorded a win since May 5. Greinke's next start is slated for Tuesday against the Rockies in Colorado.

Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke fails to pick up win Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Despite leaving the game with a lead, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke did not earn his sixth victory of the season during Monday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.

Greinke allowed one run on six hits over seven innings of work. He also struck out five batters and walked two. His lone mistake was allowing a solo home run to Marcell Ozuna in the seventh inning.

Greinke was in line for the win, but Yimi Garcia blew the 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth inning. However, the Dodgers scored three runs in the ninth to win the game. He received a no-decision Monday, which ended his streak of five consecutive wins.

Greinke has pitched at least six innings and not given up more than three runs in any of his seven starts this season. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Rockies.
