Congratulations to Zack and Mitch!


9-3 Greinke.jpgZack Greinke’s
record-setting season continued tonight in a 6-2 Kansas City win as he set a franchise mark with 15 strikeouts, breaking Mark Gubicza’s record of 14 from August 27, 1988.  Zack moved all the way from 14th on the single-season franchise list with 182 to fifth with 197.  He is one K shy of fourth place (Steve Busby, 198 in 1974) and three strikeouts away from being the fourth pitcher in franchise history to record 200 strikeouts in a season.

Mitch Maier hit his first Major League home run in the seventh inning (304th at-bat).  The Michigan native has batted .333 (21-for-63) over his last 22 games.

Congratulations to Zack on the franchise record and to Mitch for hitting his first home run!
