Dodgers’ Greinke leaves with calf strain
Question of the Day
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Zack Greinke left with a strained right calf after four pitches, Juan Uribe homered and had an RBI single and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad 4-3 Thursday.
Grienke, the Dodgers‘ No. 2 starter, was making his first spring start after saying he had “zero interest” making the trip for the Dodgers‘ two regular-season games in Sydney, Australia, March 22-23 against Arizona.
But now Greinke says he’d like to start a game at Sydney Cricket Ground.
“If we’re going to be there, which obviously we are, then, yes, I’d like to pitch over there,” he said. “I’m looking forward to flying over there.”
Uribe drove in Adrian Gonzalez and connected for a solo shot to left field in the fourth.
Diamondbacks: Randall Delgado gave up four hits and one run in 3 2-3 innings. He started 19 games last season, his first in Arizona after the Diamondbacks acquired him from Atlanta in a seven-player trade.
“I made good pitches and felt good,” Delgado said. “It was good for me to face their big league lineup.”
Dodgers: If it had been a regular-season game, Greinke believes he would have continued to pitch. The injury to his right calf, he said, felt more like a cramp than a strain. But, he said, “I know if something’s bothering you, they’re not going to let you stay in that first day of the spring. If you hurt it, you get fired, probably. No one wants to take the chance.”
Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford was scratched before the game because of a tight quadriceps in his left thigh.
“Just a little tightness,” said Crawford, who was not scheduled to play Friday at Camelback Ranch against the Chicago White Sox and will not run until the condition subsides.
