Greinke extends scoreless streak to 27 2/3 innings in Dodgers win
Gary A. Vasquez / USA TODAY Sports

Zack Greinke has now gone four consecutive starts without giving up a run.

The Los Angeles Dodgers starter was pinch-hit for in the seventh inning of Saturday's 4-3 win over the New York Mets, effectively ending his night and extending his scoreless streak to 27 2/3 innings.

Despite not throwing a complete game in any of his last four appearances, Greinke has stymied batters to no end - doing it in democratic fashion, no less.

In that span, he's struck out no more than eight batters in a single game, totalling 23 punch outs.

Greinke's scoreless innings streak is still far off from the club record, which also happens to be the major league record.

Former Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser went 59 consecutive innings without giving up a run - a stretch he began in August 1988 and ended in April 1989.

Either way, Greinke joined teammate Clayton Kershaw with four consecutive scoreless starts, two off the club record.

His counterpart, Mets starter Matt Harvey, was average at best, giving up three runs on seven hits through seven innings of work. But average against the hottest pitcher doesn't cut it, and Harvery knows it.

"Against a guy like (Greinke), three runs is too many," Harvey said. "Only going five isn't acceptable. For me, it had nothing to do with who I was facing. It was just about finding a rhythm, and I wasn't able to do that."
