At the end of the 5th inning, in a situation where there were no runners on two outs, he struck out looking Joey Weimer. Greinke’s 2914th strikeout in his career. MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), reported that Greinke became the 5th pitcher in history to strike out 1,000 different batters.
