Zack Greinke’s dominant season continues in Dodgers’ 8-2 win over Milwaukee Brewers

first_imgMaybe the reminder wasn’t needed, but stretches like these are why the Dodgers invested six years and $147 million in Greinke back in December 2012. The stretch actually goes back to last season. Greinke’s last loss coincidentally came against the Brewers, his former team, on August 9, 2014. Since then he is 10-0 with a 1.30 ERA.Other than the changeup Greinke is using more since the second half of last season, he hesitated to say anything has carried over from last year.“I pitched really well at the end of the year last year and this year’s been going pretty good since then also,” he said. “My changeup has been huge, it really has, to help against lefties and I’ve been using that against righties now to keep them off-balance a little bit.”Each win pushes the Dodgers closer to October baseball; potentially, it also pushes Greinke closer to free agency. He can opt out of his contract at the end of this season. The better Greinke pitches, and the longer he remains healthy, the more money he figures to command on the open market. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error But that decision is months away. No Cy Young Award votes will be cast before September. For now, Greinke’s consistency is not a thing to be scrutinized. This cast of Dodgers has seen almost every player step into and out of the limelight at some point. Several players have been placed on the disabled list and eventually, maybe next week, one will be activated.The only player who’s been more consistent than Greinke is arguably Gonzalez, who has a hit in 20 of the 24 games he’s started. His seventh-inning home run was his ninth this season, which matched Todd Frazier for the National League lead. His .361 batting average is third in the NL and only Giancarlo Stanton has more RBIs.The Dodgers took a 3-1 lead in the sixth inning on Turner’s fourth home run of the season. Turner finished 3 for 4 with four RBIs.The home runs by Rollins and Gonzalez gave the Dodgers a 7-1 lead in the seventh inning. For Rollins, it was his third home run of the season and it ended a streak of 13 consecutive at-bats without a hit.Milwaukee scored first. Aramis Ramirez singled with one out in the second inning and scored when Joc Pederson appeared to lose a ball in the lights in deep left-center with two outs.Dodgers relievers Pedro Baez and Daniel Coulombe finished the eighth and ninth innings, respectively. Coulombe allowed a run in his 2015 debut.Greinke gave his teammates plenty of margin for error.“He executed his game plan,” said catcher Yasmani Grandal ‑ something the Dodgers, and all of baseball, can take for granted.center_img MILWAUKEE >> Zack Greinke’s spring training began with an injection in his right elbow. Questions about his stamina followed him throughout camp. One month into the regular season, Greinke is the Dodgers’ leader in innings pitched, earned-run average and wins (5-0). Absent the Clayton Kershaw of 2014 ‑ he’s been merely good so far, not historically dominant ‑ Greinke is for all intents and purposes the Dodgers’ staff ace at the moment.In an 8-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, Greinke allowed just two hits and one unearned run in 7 2/3 innings. He threw in a double for good measure, but the home runs by Justin Turner, Jimmy Rollins and Adrian Gonzalez already had Greinke destined for the win column.“I think people know within baseball circles how good Zack is,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “He may get overlooked because he’s a little quieter, and really what Clayton’s been doing over the last four or five years has really been off the charts. Anybody that’s here would really get overlooked.”last_img read more
