For the second time in his career, Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke struck out four batters in one inning on Friday night. Here's the play-by-play blurb:

Greinke also struck out four batters in one inning while with the Angels back in September 2012. He fanned John Jaso, Eric Thames, Trayvon Robinson and Brendan Ryan of the Mariners that day.

Greinke joins A.J. Burnett and Chuck Finley as the only pitchers in history with multiple four-strikeout innings. He and Burnett have both done it twice. Finley did it three different times.

Also in Friday's game, Yasiel Puig became the first Dodgers player with three triples in one game in 103 years.
