Dodgers reach 10,000th win
MINNEAPOLIS — Zack Greinke added to his century-best run on a historic night for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Greinke pitched six strong innings, Juan Uribe had two RBIs and the Los Angeles Dodgers earned their 10,000th win in franchise history, 6-4 over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.
Greinke (5-0) struck out six and didn’t allow an earned run through drizzling rain and temperatures that dipped into the 30s. He now has gone 18 straight regular-season starts of at least five innings while allowing two runs or fewer, the longest run since 1914.
He also has opened a season with wins in five straight decisions for the first time since he was 6-0 in his AL Cy Young Award season of 2009.
“My stuff was a lot better then,” Greinke said. “I’m locating better, being smarter. I’ve gotten a lot of help here, nice defensive plays.”
The Dodgers join the Giants, Cubs and Braves as the only franchises to win 10,000 games.
