KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Perhaps Zack Greinke's talents have
finally found their niche.
Since moving to the bullpen about eight weeks ago as a failed
starter, the young right-hander has been nearly impossible to hit.
Working two innings to help preserve a victory over
Philadelphia, he struck out five of six batters. His E-R-A in his
last nine appearances covering 19 innings for a revitalized Kansas
City relief corps is a minuscule 0.95. He's always wielded a
baffling changeup, and now as a middle reliever his fastball is
regularly hitting 97, 98 miles an hour with great movement while
his breaking pitches bite sharply at the corners.
Typical was his outing in a tense 3-to-2 victory Friday night
that snapped Seattle's eight-game win streak.
