Amazing Pitching Performances

Zach Greinke pitched a complete game shutout tonight, as the Royals beat the Rangers 2-0. He gave up 7 hits and 0 walks, and struck out 10. That brings his season line to 20 IP, 16 H, 5 BB, 26 K, and a 0.00 ERA. He's 3-0, and looking like a pretty strong candidate to be in the Cy Young discussion this year.

In other news, Rich Harden pitched an amazing (in another sense) game a couple of days ago. He went 3 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 8 K. Nine baserunners and eight strike-outs in three innings. And that ninth out actually occurred on the bases, so Harden didn't retire a single runner on balls in play. That has never happened before, for a pitcher that pitched that many innings in a game.
