The Zack Greinke who took the mound at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday was a very different pitcher from the Greinke who dominated the Phillies for eight innings last month in Los Angeles. Greinke began by overthrowing first base, allowing Phils leadoff hitter Cesar Hernandez to move to second after reaching on a bunt single. It was the pitcher's second error of the season. "I know I was upset about it," Greinke said. "I should have made that play. " The error set the tone for Greinke in the Dodgers' 10-8 win. In the first inning, the National League's ERA leader gave up five runs.

While preparing for the 2002 draft, Phillies officials took inventory of their organization. They knew the relationship between third baseman Scott Rolen and the team had deteriorated beyond repair. They also knew that attempts to make Chase Utley a third baseman were not going well at triple A. The Phils believed they needed to add a third baseman to their system through the draft. One of the players they scouted before that draft was a versatile high school pitcher/shortstop from the Orlando, Fla., area.

When the phone rang, Zack Greinke let it go - he didn't recognize the number. Only after listening to the voice mail did he call back and find out he'd won the American League Cy Young Award. The Kansas City Royals' ace easily beat out Felix Hernandez for the honor yesterday after a spectacular season short on wins but long on domination. Winning the award left the extremely shy Greinke with mixed emotions. "Back in Orlando, I haven't really got a whole lot of attention from people, which has been nice," he said.

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers are a small-market team that thinks big. Once again, it's paying off with a trip to the playoffs. Under principal owner Mark Attanasio and general manager Doug Melvin, the Brewers haven't shied away from making high-profile moves to get marquee players. They traded for CC Sabathia in 2008, then acquired Zack Greinke and Francisco Rodriguez for this year's playoff push. And while the Brewers have given up plenty of prospects in the process, making the playoffs twice in the past four seasons is quite the accomplishment for a team whose fan base previously hadn't had reason to watch October baseball since 1982.

David Buchanan said he was disappointed in himself. The Phillies pitcher said he was a little upset. The Phillies blitzed Los Angeles ace Zack Greinke for five runs in a stunning first inning Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The rally pulled them out of a three-run hole that Buchanan had dug in the top of the first. Their lead proved brief. Buchanan gave up a three-run homer to Adrian Gonzalez in the second inning, and the Phillies went on lose, 10-8. The Phillies' fast start was a surprise, but it was not enough.

SAN DIEGO - On the last day that Adam Loewen had played in the major leagues, the Phillies won their 102d game of the 2011 season. The last time Loewen had pitched in the major leagues, Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux were still part of big-league rotations. But there was the 6-foot-6 lefthander on Friday afternoon at Petco Park, settling into a locker stall in the visitors' clubhouse. A circuitous route back to the majors surely made the call the 30-year-old Canadian received on Thursday from the Phillies all the more rewarding.

Nick Markakis scored the go-ahead run on an error in the 10th inning as the visiting Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers, 6-3, last night, in their first meeting since the Rangers scored an AL record 39 runs in a doubleheader sweep last month. Melvin Mora added an RBI single and Brian Roberts hit a three-run homer off Wes Littleton, but the Orioles had to hang on as Fernando Carbrera gave up two runs in the 10th. Jamie Walker (2-2), the fifth of six Baltimore pitchers, struck out three in 1 2-3 innings.

SAN DIEGO Padres slugger Carlos Quentin on Sunday dropped his appeal and began serving an eight-game suspension for rushing the mound and inciting a brawl in which Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke broke his left collarbone. With the suspension starting with Sunday's game against Colorado, Quentin will miss the Padres' three-game series at Dodger Stadium beginning Monday night. "There's been many different ideas and thoughts and concerns out there," Quentin said. "Let me say this as far as the Dodgers series: Obviously I will miss the upcoming one, but I will be a part of the rest.

The Kansas City Royals were supposed to provide a perfect launching pad for the Detroit Tigers' highly touted offense. The Royals' pitchers did not cooperate, and the host Tigers failed to launch. Zack Greinke (1-0) had another outstanding pitching performance for Kansas City, allowing one run in seven innings as the Royals finished off a season-opening sweep with a 4-1 win yesterday. The Tigers and their $138.7 million payroll managed five runs in the series, including just one in the final 21 innings.

You'd think by now that any front-runner who wanted a Derek Jeter jersey would have one, but that's not the case: For the third straight year, his No. 2 was the top-seller in baseball, beating out Josh Hamilton, the new Yanks jersey for Ichiro Suzuki, and hotshot rookies Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. But what about the least popular jerseys? Can we hear it for ex-Phillie/current Pirate Chad Qualls?   Orioles are Eagles fans It's been a zany, unpredictable season for the Baltimore Orioles, so perhaps it's only fitting that the magical moment when they clinched a playoff berth occurred Sunday while they were aboard a chartered flight forced to land short of its destination.

NEW YORK - Pitching matchups like these are more regularly seen in the first game of a division series, for which teams well in advance line up their best arms to pitch. This one comes in a winner-take-all Game 5. Zack Greinke, the second of the Los Angeles Dodgers' two aces, and Jacob deGrom, breakout star of the New York Mets, take the mound Thursday night at Dodger Stadium with each team's season hanging in the balance. The successes or failures of either righthander could very well decide which team advances to play the Chicago Cubs in the National League Championship Series.

Maikel Franco will hit off a tee Wednesday afternoon in an indoor batting cage at Citizens Bank Park. Whether the Phillies' promising rookie third baseman still feels discomfort in his left wrist should determine his status for the season's final four weeks. Franco, 23, visited a doctor Tuesday. If he swings pain-free Wednesday, there remains a chance he might return before season's end. If the discomfort lingers, the Phillies will likely shut him down with an eye toward spring training, if not winter ball in his native Dominican Republic.

MIAMI - Since the Phillies last faced Jacob deGrom, the New York Mets righthander has lowered his ERA from 2.71 to 1.98, dominated on a national stage in the All-Star Game, and thrust himself into National League Cy Young Award consideration. The Phillies host deGrom and the first-place Mets on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park in what will be a stiff challenge for a young lineup that has performed much better since the all-star break. Entering Sunday's series finale against the Miami Marlins, the Phillies were scoring 4.84 runs per game in the second half, exactly a run and a half more than in the first half.

The Phillies offense was nearly dormant on Wednesday night for much of a 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park. They were hitless for four straight innings. Their starting pitcher dug them into a quick three-run hole. Yet they somehow still had a chance. Jeff Francoeur blasted a two-run homer in the eighth after Odubel Herrera singled to center. But the comeback fell short. Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth. The offensive eruption never came.

YOU DIDN'T really figure the Phillies would get through the second half of the season without losing back-to-back games or dropping a series. Well, did you? Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, they were trying to take a series here against the Dodgers for the first time since June 2011. And after spotting the visitors three runs in the first, they scored five of their own in their half against Zack Greinke. Before they made an out. That's the same Greinke who'd given up five first-inning runs all year.

LOS ANGELES — A night after falling victim to a dominant Clayton Kershaw, the Phillies ran into another buzzsaw in Zack Greinke. Greinke's incredible recent run of success reached a new apex Thursday night at Dodger Stadium, where the Los Angeles righthander allowed merely one hit over eight shutout innings. While lowering his already major-league best ERA, the former Cy Young Award winner sent the Phillies to San Francisco on the heels of a second consecutive shutout loss, 6-0. The Phillies fell to a woeful 30 games under .500, the earliest in a season they have done so since 1997.

LOS ANGELES - For the Phillies' recently improved offense, the game Wednesday night against reigning National League MVP Clayton Kershaw marked the beginning of a three-day gauntlet of opposing starters.

Dodgers righthander Zack Greinke enters the series finale riding a streak of 272/3 consecutive scoreless innings over his last four starts. Greinke, 31, boasts a major-league best 1.48 ERA this season.
