Miller Park used to be home to Zach Greinke, and a place where he was perfect. Going into last night’s game at the Brewers park Greinke (who played for Milwaukee from 2011 and part of 2012) was a perfect 15-0 with a 2.93 ERA. That was over 23 starts and 147.2 innings pitched.
That perfect record came to an end Tuesday night (5/21/13) when Greinke took the mound as a Los Angles Dodger, it was his first time back to the Brew City since he was traded to the Angels for now Brewer Shortstop Jean Segura in 2012. During the off-season he was then dealt to the Dodgers.
The Brewers lit up their former “Ace,” and knocked him out of the game in the 5th, when they rapped out 5 straight hits – 3 singles, a double, and a triple (the triple by one Jean Segura). Those hits lead to 4 runs giving the Brewers the lead, and eventually the win 5-2.
Greinke’s line for the night in a place where he used to be unbeatable… 4 innings pitched, gave up 9 hits, 5 runs (all earned) walked 3 while only striking out 1.
