Greinke Nearly Unhittable; Another Complete Game

Game Date: April 24, 2009
Detroit @ Kansas City 
Royals 6, Tigers 1 / Box Score
WP: Greinke (4-0), LP: Porcello (1-2)
KC Home Runs: Teahen (2), Callaspo (1) 
Royals Record: 9-7 / Record in April: 9-7

Zack Greinke pitched his second consecutive complete game tonight and he should have had his second consecutive shutout, but an error wiped out that and his 38 inning scoreless inning streak. He still hasn’t given up an earned run this season. He’s hitting his spots; hit fastball is moving; and he looks completely focused. After the game, Royals fans could be heard shouting, “Cy Young.” Look out American League.

Yup, the fans are not joking. Zack Greinke is a legitimate threat to win the AL Cy Young Award this year.

It is a shame that Gil Meche isn't receiving his due, either. Meche has had a solid season and is a very skilled pitcher. KC has a tremendous rotation that could turn 85-90 wins for them this year, easily.
