greinke continues to dominate

Zack Greinke outdueled Max Scherzer on Sunday as the Dodgers blanked the Nationals, 5-0.

Greinke, who pitched eight soreless innings, has not allowed a run in 43 2/3 innings, which is the third-longest scoreless streak in Dodgers history (the longest is 59 innings by the Dodgers' Orel Hershiser in 1988).

He has not allowing a run since June 13.

After improving to 9-2, the All-Star starter for the National League claims baseball's best ERA (1.30), the lowest batting average against (.187) and the second-lowest WHIP (0.82).

On Sunday, the continuous zeros Greinke put up were necessary for more than just extending a streak or improving a stat line. They were needed to win a series.

Matched up against Scherzer, perhaps the No. 1 (b) pitcher in the NL if Greinke is No. 1 (a), both starters lived up to the hype. The only run either allowed came on a wild pitch from Scherzer in the fourth inning.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
