Greinke, Goldschmidt lead Diamondbacks over Giants

PHOENIX – Remember last year, when the Arizona Diamondbacks appeared hopeless while losing 93 games, Zack Greinke had a rather ordinary 4.37 ERA and Giants fans were breathing relief that he turned down their $200 million offer to join a division rival?

Remember when the Giants signed Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, instead, and counted their good fortune?

The cleat is on the other foot this season, and the Diamondbacks are one step closer to the playoffs after taking a 4-3 victory over the Giants Friday night at Chase Field.

Greinke (15-6) matched the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw for the major league lead in victories while pitching into the seventh inning, and Giants left-hander Ty Blach was left to ponder one regrettable changeup he threw with a base open to a leading NL MVP candidate.
