Stat Of The Night: No Runs, No Walks

There are a lot of positives to discuss from tonight's game, but Zack Greinke is probably the biggest one. He pitched seven shutout innings tonight on five hits, striking out seven without allowing a walk. If you've been paying attention, you may recall that Greinke struck eleven without allowing a walk over eight shutout innings his last time out.

Surprisingly, Greinke is only the second pitcher in Brewer franchise history to hold the opponent scoreless and not allow a walk in back to back starts. Until 2007, it had never happened:

Pitcher Season Dates IP H R K BB
Chris Capuano 2007 May 2 and 7 11 9 0 10 0
Zack Greinke 2012 May 9 and 15 15 7 0 18 0

A Brewer starting pitcher has allowed no walks and no runs in a game just 100 times in franchise history. Greinke is the only one to do it in 2012. Marco Estrada, Chris Narveson and Randy Wolf all did it at least once in 2011.
