Zack Greinke fell to 0-1, allowing three runs on four hits and five walks in 5.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 on Monday. Greinke struck out four, ending the game with a 5.40 ERA and 1.80 WHIP on the season.
Greinke walked five in the first three innings, his season high. He had not walked more than five in a game since walking seven against the Rockies on July 3, 2013.
Greinke lasted 3.2 innings and didn't factor into the decision in the Diamondbacks' 11-8 win over the Rockies on Wednesday in the National League wild-card game. He gave up four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out one batter in the 58-pitch outing.
Staked to a 6-0 lead after cruising through the first three frames, Greinke appeared poised to put the game away for the Diamondbacks without much worry, but he completely unraveled in the top of the fourth to let the Rockies back in the contest. He allowed five of the first seven batters of the inning to reach base and allowed all but one to score before Andrew Chafin came out of the bullpen to put out the fire. Fortunately for the Diamondbacks, Greinke's poor outing didn't cost them the win, but the team's confidence in the ace might be a bit shaken heading into a divisional-round matchup with the Dodgers. Over his last three appearances, Greinke has covered 11.2 innings and has surrendered 14 runs on 21 hits and five walks.
Zack Greinke allowed four runs on six hits and one walk in 3.2 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Colorado Rockies 11-8 on Wednesday. Greinke struck out one, ending the game with a 9.82 ERA and 1.91 WHIP on the season.
Greinke is fortunate Arizona's offense showed up as he uncharacteristically couldn't hold a six-run lead early on. We expect him to bounce back against his former team, the Dodgers.
Zack Greinke fell to 17-7, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks in 4.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Friday. Greinke struck out four, ending the game with a 3.20 ERA and 1.07 WHIP on the season.
It was his final outing before starting the wild-card game Wednesday in Phoenix against either Colorado or Milwaukee. ''It felt good, healthy, making pitches, and I didn't win the game,'' Greinke said. ''That was not ideal, but I felt good out there.'' Greinke, who the Royals drafted sixth overall in 2002, was on a limited pitch count and removed after 75. Greinke is 0-2 in four career starts against the Royals, the only major league team he has never beaten.
Greinke (17-7) was the pitcher of record in the Diamondbacks' 2-1 loss to the Royals on Friday. He went four innings and was tagged for two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four batters.
Making his fourth career start against the team that drafted him in 2002, Greinke was limited to 75 pitches in his final outing of the regular season, despite not laboring too badly when he was pulled in the fourth inning. The ace's early departure was a pre-planned move by manager Torey Lovullo, who wanted to keep Greinke on his normal pitching schedule while not overextending him in advance of a starting assignment Oct. 4 in the Diamondbacks' matchup against either the Rockies or Brewers. Greinke will finish the 2017 campaign with a 3.20 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 215 strikeouts in 202.1 innings, which should help him earn some down-ballot votes for the National League Cy Young Award.
