Greinke leads Dodgers to another win over Arizona
Question of the Day
PHOENIX (AP) - Against Arizona, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the dominant team they are supposed to be. Against everyone else, not so much.
“They have outplayed us, outpitched us,” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “The guy that beat us tonight has his best stuff going this year.”
“There’s teams you hit well as a player, you pitch good against,” he said. “This is one of those teams we played well against this year. Hopefully that continues.”
Greinke (7-1), in his longest outing of the season, allowed two or fewer runs for the 21st consecutive game, the longest such streak in the majors since at least 1914.
Asked how much he thinks about that he said, “not much, actually”
“It’s not like one of the more important streaks,” Greinke said. “It’s not a real big deal.”
He gave up five hits, struck out six, walked two and had an RBI double.
“I forgot how fun it is to catch him,” said A.J. Ellis, just back from the disabled list.
Puig, who fell a triple shy of the cycle, extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games.
“I’m trying to get hits and put a swing on good pitches,” Puig said to reporters in Spanish. “I wasn’t worried hitting for the cycle or anything like that.”
