|Steve Garvey, Dusty Baker, Ron Cey and Reggie Smith each hit 30 home runs in 1977. A first for a team in baseball history.|
Admittedly Greinke didn't have his best stuff to start off the game today, as he was uncharacteristically wild in the third innings, with two walks leading to the only Padre run. He buckled down his control shortly thereafter after making a few adjustments. On a warm and uncomfortable day at the ball park where balls tend to fly out and carry better in the daytime, Greinke pitched a masterful 7 innings. Again, he showed his stuff with the bat too.
