Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Hunter Greene tossed an impressive first five innings against the Dodgers on Saturday night in the second start of his Major League Baseball career - at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium, about 15 miles away from where he starred at Sherman Oaks' Notre Dame High School.
MLB.com's Sarah Langs confirmed that Greene's 34th pitch of 100+ miles per hour set a new MLB record for a start. Greene added five more to bring his total to 39.
Greene left the game with one out in the bottom of the 6th inning, having thrown 80 pitches. He struck out six and allowed two runs - on a two-run Trea Turner home run in the 6th. The Reds lost 5-2 to fall to an MLB-worst 2-7 this season.
