Zack Greinke, who played alongside “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin for the Los Angeles Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB) from 2013 to 2015, has lost 15 games (1 win) this season. On Tuesday (Nov. 10), he took the loss in relief against the Toronto Blue Jays, Ryu’s current team.

He took the mound in the top of the third inning with a scoreless streak. He pitched a scoreless third inning. However, he gave up one run in the fourth, two in the fifth, and one in the sixth. In 3.2 innings, he allowed four runs on six hits, one home run, one walk and struck out four. He was charged with the loss as Kansas City fell to 1-5. He is now 1-15 with a 5.47 ERA on the season.

He started the season as a starter but struggled and was recently moved to a relief role. However, he still had some bad outings. On March 3, he gave up three runs on five hits and one walk in 3.2 innings against the Boston Red Sox, and he also took a loss against Toronto the same day. He is tied for second in the majors for most losses this season behind teammate Jordan Lyles (4-16).

Greinke made his debut with Kansas City in 2004 and bounced around with the Milwaukee Brewers, Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Houston Rockies before returning to the Royals last year. He won the Cy Young Award in 2009 after going 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA and 1.07 WHIP for Kansas City, leading the American League in ERA.

The six-time Major League Baseball All-Star, six-time Golden Glove and two-time Silver Slugger played for the Dodgers from 2013 to 2015. His best years came in 2015, when he went 19-3 with a 1.66 ERA and led the National League in wins. After moving to Arizona in 2016, he continued his ace-like performance, but after moving to Houston in 2020, he went downhill and returned to Kansas City last year, posting a 4-9 record with a 3.68 ERA.온라인바카

He opened the season as a starter again this year, but has struggled. After throwing five innings of three-hit ball against the Baltimore Orioles on May 4, leading Kansas City to a 6-0 win, he has lost 10 straight starts. In 18 starts on the mound, he recorded eight no-decisions and took the bitter end of 10 losses. His major league career record stands at 224-256 with a 3.50 ERA. 

Meanwhile, Toronto beat Kansas City for the second straight day to move into a tie for the second wild-card spot in the American League.
