The New Delino Curse

Zack Greinke - B.D. (Before Delino) - 40 Scoreless Inning Streak

Zack Greinke - A.D. - LITERALLY thirty seconds after the Delino sat down to watch his first Royals game in years.

And with that, a beautiful streak ends on an errant throw to third base. In other news, there is still only one MAN!

Nice work Delino. I like Grienke, but Orel must remain the man.

The run was unearned. Doesn't the streak stay alive?

The streak is scoreless innings, not innings without an earned run.

Of all the ways to end a streak... it was such a boneheaded play. Grienke must be furious. (Though it was the nicest response you'll ever see from a home crowd for an unearned run). They even had a play at the plate, but the catcher dropped it.
