PHOENIX (AP) As if things weren’t going bad enough for the Arizona Diamondbacks jerseys, now they have to worry about cheap Zack Greinke jersey’s health.
The Diamondbacks jerseys ace departed after two innings with tightness in his oblique muscle and Philadelphia rallied with two runs in the ninth inning to beat the Diamondbacks jerseys 4 3 on Tuesday night.
cheap Andres Blanco jersey had an RBI single and Frank Howard drew a bases loaded walk off closer cheap Brad Ziegler jersey (2 3), who blew his second save in his last three tries after converting 43 in a row. cheap Maikel Franco jersey homered for Philadelphia.
Greinke, in search of his 11th win, hit a bases loaded sacrifice fly to score a run in the second and left after a few warmup pitches before the start of the third. He immediately felt something was wrong.
And manager Chip Hale said there was no way he was going to risk his prize pitcher worsening the injury.
“It’s something maybe he can maybe miss a start, possibly not miss a start, possibly at worst maybe 15 days on the DL,” Hale said. “You never know. But if you go out and really yank it bad, you’re talking about a month or two, so we’ll hope for a best case scenario.”
Greinke allowed a run in the second inning on consecutive singles by cheap Freddy Galvis jersey, cheap Cesar Hernandez jersey and the pitcher cheap Jerad Eickhoff jersey. In the bottom of the inning, Arizona loaded the bases with no outs but the only run they scored was on Greinke’s sacrifice fly to left. Greinke figures he hurt himself with that swing.
When the Diamondbacks jerseys pitcher walked back onto the field to start the third, he looked at the dugout and called for the trainer. After a short huddle with umpires, Greinke went into the dugout to rub some heat ointment and emerged a moment later.
He threw a few warmup pitches off the mound, didn’t feel any better and left the game.
Greinke didn’t want to come out but realized later it was the right thing to do.
“I more than likely would have hurt myself a lot worse staying,” he said.”
Greinke hasn’t missed a start since 2013. Greinke was 7 0 in his previous eighth start.
“I was pitching pretty good for a while and felt really good today,” he said. “Hopefully it’s nothing major we’ll find out more in the next couple of days and hope it’s nothing much at all and (I) just continue pitching good.”
The Phillies jerseys won a series for the first time since May 16 18.
“It reminded me the way we played the first two months of the season,” Philadelphia manager Pete Mackanin said. “We stayed in the game, scratched and clawed and eked out a win. That is the way we did it for two months.”
cheap Hector Neris jersey (2 3) pitched a scoreless wholesale baseball jerseys eighth to get the victory as the Phillies jerseys won a series for the first time in 13 tries. cheap Jeanmar Gomez jersey tossed a perfect ninth for his 21st save.
Franco’s two out solo shot off cheap Randall Delgado jersey in the fourth put Philadelphia up 2 1. Arizona tied it 2 2 when Tomas led off the sixth with his home run. Lamb’s homer in the seventh put the Diamondbacks jerseys up 3 2.
