Greinke Continues Stellar Season

Game Date: May 26, 2009
Detroit @ Kansas City
Royals 6, Tigers 1 / Box Score
WP: Greinke (8-1), LP: Jackson (4-3)
KC Home Runs: Guillen (4)
Royals Record: 23-23 / Record in May 11-13

If Carl Pavano pitched for the Tigers, would he have said that Tigers’ hitters wore Zack Greinke out tonight because they scored a run against him? You have to wonder.

Zack Greinke is putting together one of the greatest seasons in the modern era. Will it last? Who knows. But enjoy each start because we’re seeing something that we might just be telling our grandchildren about someday.

Let’s look at a few of Greinke’s accomplishments so far this season:

Greinke is on pace to go 28-3 which, if he were able to stay on pace, he would best Bob Welch in 1990, who went 27-6. You have to go back to a time when four-man rotations were king to find a pitcher with more wins. Denny McLain was 31-6 in 1968 with 41 starts.
