Zack Greinke Uses Trickery with 65 MPH Eephus Curveball to Record 12th Strikeout

By Anthony Blake

For guys used to seeing 90-plus MPH pitches on a regular basis, the Little League style delivery can really throw off an MLB hitter.

Case in point, just check out this nasty eephus pitch Arizona Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke used to fool Chicago White Sox batter Yolmer Sanchez for his 12th strikeout of the evening.

It’s the 9th inning, but Zack Greinke’s STILL got new tricks up his sleeve.

That was just filthy!

Greinke’s only disappointment was falling one out shy of his second complete game of the season in another strong outing, with the D-Backs earning a 5-1 win.
