We all know that the Los Angeles Dodgers are one of the best teams in baseball. With a 53-40 record, the Dodgers lead the NL West division by 3.5 games over the San Francisco Giants. Impressive? Yes, but the most impressive thing in Dodger town right now is Zach Greinke.

Greinke currently has a 9-2 record with an outstanding 1.30 earned run average (ERA), which is .79 points lower then Max Scherzer, who sits with a 2.09 ERA. The Dodgers veteran has had some very solid seasons in his career, but nothing quite like this 2015 campaign. Along with his 1.30 ERA, Greinke has allowed one of the fewest amount of hits in the entire MLB, and has allowed the fewest earned runs.

Concluding Sunday's play, Greinke extended his streak of not allowing a run to 43 and 2/3rd innings in front of 40,293, at Nationals Park, securing a 5-0 win.



In the game Greinke threw eight stellar innings, only squandering three hits while fanning 11 National batters. He even added a hit to his incredible performance . A week earlier, Greinke started for the National League at the 86th MLB All-Star game. The American League won that game by a score of 6-2.

Greinke's streak became the fourth longest since 1961. The longest in history being EX Dodger and Hall of Famer, Orel Hershiser, who's streak lasted an outstanding 59 innings in 1988. Hershiser won the CY Young award that year while and won the World Series in five games with the Dodgers.

Since 2011, Greinke has won 87 games and lost 30 games.

If you don't consider this season as Greinke's best in his 12 year career, you would have to look a couple years back in 2013 when he went 15-4 with a 2.63 ERA.

If Greinke continues his amazing performances, he could become the second Dodger in as many years to win the National League CY Young award. Clayton Kershaw won the award last year going 21-3 with a 1.77 ERA. One of the best overall performances in MLB History. Greinke has an opportunity to extend the streak on Friday night when the Dodgers take on the New York Mets.
