Dodgers RHP Zack Greinke complimented the Mets offense after facing them Thursday at Citi Field.
Greinke entered the game having allowed two runs or less in his previous 21 starts. However, he needed 52 pitches to get through the first two innings of last night’s game. His night ended in the fifth inning, after throwing 101 pitches, and being charged with three runs.
“That was the best any team’s taken my quality sliders and quality change-ups all year,” Greinke said after the game.
He enters Friday tied for first in wins and fifth in ERA in the National League.
“I thought our guys did a great job of working the counts and getting some balls. We hit some balls pretty good and hit them at some people,” he said.
