Stat Of The Night: Zack Greinke's Short Night

If you tuned in late tonight, you missed most of the game: Zack Greinke allowed seven runs in the first two innings tonight and was lifted early. The Brewers never recovered and lost 11-2.

Tonight's two inning start was Greinke's shortest since 2007 and tied for the second shortest of his major league career:

Date Opponent IP H ER BB K
4/16/2007 Tigers 0.2 3 4 3 1
Tonight Yankees 2 5 7 3 0
7/20/2004 Orioles 2 9 8 0 2
4/7/2005 Tigers 2.1 4 0 0 1

Unfortunately, history doesn't have much good news for us here: Greinke was very good on the start after the 2005 outing listed above, but got roughed up again in the starts following the 2004 and 2007 games.

Also worth noting: In his last start Greinke became just the third Brewer ever to strike out ten opposing batters in back-to-back starts. Tonight, he didn't strike anyone out. Baseball is a funny game sometimes.
