Dodgers spring training 2015: Zack Greinke, Dodgers fall 8-4 to San Francisco.

"<strongGLENDALE, Ariz. — Zack Greinke didn’t pull any punches after his penultimate spring start.

“After today I probably need like five more starts,” Greinke said.

He’ll get one more. Unlike Clayton Kershaw, Brett Anderson and Brandon McCarthy, he won’t scale back his pitch-count limit in his next start, which should fall next Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals.

“I’ve thrown enough,” Greinke said. “I should be ready. If I’m not, it’s not because of lack of innings — it’s just not getting ready fast enough. I should be ready when the season starts.”

Greinke allowed five hits, four runs — two scored on a dropped fly ball by Carl Crawford in left field — two walks and three strikeouts. He was pulled after reaching his pitch-count limit (76) with two outs in the fourth inning.

“I wasn’t pitching good that last inning or the inning before,” Greinke said. “It was pretty horrible.”

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Greinke is still on target to start the second game of the season, April 7 against the San Diego Padres.

“I’m confident that he’s going to be ready,” Mattingly said. “It’s just at what level.”

The box score is here.
