Stat Of The Night: Greinke Avoids "No Runs, No Decisions" Club

The Brewers waited until the last minute to prevent Zack Greinke from joining a pretty exclusive club tonight. Greinke pitched nine innings for the first time as a Brewer and didn't allow a run, but until Rickie Weeks' tenth inning RBI single it looked like he was in line for a no-decision.

If Greinke hadn't gotten the win tonight, he would've been just the seventh pitcher in franchise history to pitch a scoreless outing of nine innings or more and get a no-decision:
