Los Angeles Dodgers: Zack Greinke in longest streak since 1914

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke allowed two or fewer runs for the 21st consecutive game, the longest streak in Major League Baseball since at 1914. Greinke also leads the National League with seven wins.

Throughout the game, Greinke gave up five hits, struck out six men, walked two and had an RBI double.

The great pitching, combined with Yasiel Puig and Scott Van Slyke hitting home runs, helped the Dodgers with the 7-0 win. The win over the Diamondbacks means the Dodgers have won 15 of the last 19 games between the two teams.

Greinke being in this streak is something that Dodgers fans have been looking at with much glee over the past seven games. Los Angeles is vying for a World Series this year and one way to ensure a solid chance at hoisting the trophy is to have a pitcher like Greinke who is in an streak of being unstoppable.
