LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 15: Zack Greinke #21 of the Los Angeles Dodgers smiles as he talks wth catcher A.J. Ellis #17 and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez #23 as he waits to be relieved in the sixth inning of the game against the Washington Nationals at Dodger Stadium on May 15, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Even before the losing streak started, we were talking about how nice it would be to win a game where we're not biting our nails at the end of it ... Even the games we were winning were close games.
We just went in there against him being ready to hit ... He's got a sneaky fastball, and we knew it going in from the guys that have already faced him. Don't let the radar gun fool you. Even though it's in the 80s to low 90s, it feels harder. It plays harder. He's not the kind of guy you want to let get the ball deep on you because it'll be by you. So you have to treat him like a hard thrower.More quotes »
