Zack Greinke from the Chronology
Jun 10, 2005 - After blowing an 11-3 lead in the 8th Troy Glaus of Arizona homers off Mike MacDougal in the 10th to give Arizona a 12-11 win over Kansas City. The D'Backs took the lead on Shawn Green's two homers and 5 RBI but 10 walks to the Royals help bring them back. Ruben Gotay (HR) and David DeJesus (3B) each drive in 2 runs in the Royals' 6-run 8th. KC starting pitcher Zack Greinke hits a homer but they pay him to pitch and he allows 15 hits and 11 runs in 4+ innings recording just 13 outs. Greinke joins Eppa Rixey (1927) Bill Sherdel (1931) and Scott Sanders (1998) as the only pitchers to give up 15 hits while recording 13 outs or fewer in a game (Elias Sports Bureau)
