Zack Greinke took his first loss of the season after he gave up two runs on five hits and a walk with one strikeout against the Nationals on Monday.
Greinke took his first loss of the season on Monday night after pitching only three innings due to a three hour and 17 minute rain delay cut his night short. He now sits 5-1 through his first seven starts with a 2.35 ERA and 1.12 WHIP while averaging well over one strikeout per inning pitched (11.04 K/9). The Dodgers righty will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Giants on Saturday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
