Zack Greinke named AL Pitcher of the Month!

8-27 Greinke.jpgThe AL Pitcher of the Month for April is KC’s own Zack Greinke.  He is the first Royal to win Pitcher of the Month since Jose Lima in July, 2003.  Greinke went 5-0 with a 0.50 ERA and 44 strikeouts in April, leading the majors in wins, complete games, ERA and strikeouts during the month.

Zack extended his scoreless innings record to 43.0 innings before allowing his first earned run since September 13 of last season.  He joined Fernando Valenzuela as the only pitchers in MLB history (dating to the early 1900s) to not allow an earned run through his first four starts.

Congratulations Zack!
