Post-Game 78 Thread: It's Almost as if the Royals Have Seen Zack Greinke Before

It was that kind of night for Zack Greinke.

A different kind of Public Enemy No. 1.


Greinke fooled nobody today, least of all Salvador Perez (solo home run), Jarrod Dyson (3 for 3, 2 RBI, R), Lorenzo Cain (RBI single) and Alcides Escobar (RBI triple). Zack left the game in the sixth inning to a smattering of boos, per the Twitters.

Down five runs by the sixth, the Dodgers, in true Dodger fashion, put a few runs up late (a two-RBI double by Hanley in the eighth and a solo homer by AGon in the ninth) to give Dodger fans a glimmer of hope.

Then the team took that glimmer of hope, crumpled it into a tiny ball, and flushed it down the toilet.

Fortunately, the Giants lost again, keeping the Dodgers a tantalizing four games back. Mr. No goes tomorrow for the Dodgers.

back in the day, when we sucked against AL teams, we would have lost this 9-3

I was watching it. I was hoping the Italian players would punch Suarez in the face after the game.

Seriously, though, I suspect he'll have some dire consequences incoming.
