Zack Greinke allowed two runs on five hits, a home run, one walk, to go with 11 strikeouts over seven innings in the win over the Phillies on Wednesday.
With the win Greinke moved his record to 4-0 on the season through five starts and has yet to yield more than two runs in a start. The double-digit strikeout game was his 18th of his career, but his first since 9/25/2012 vs. Seattle. Greinke will look to remain undefeated when he toes the slab in his next start on Tuesday at home against the Twins. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Aldon Smith said he is "hungry" to bounce back in 2015.
While that's all well and good, the bottom line is that Smith needs to stay focused on the field and out of trouble off it. His suspension really hurt the 49ers defense and with a new regime taking over, he needs to really prove that he's more than just a problem child. He can be one of the best in the game if he's focused, so if he's really that hungry, the 49ers will let him eat. Analysis: Howard Bender
