Greinke, leads Dodgers to 10,000th franchise win

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings, Juan Uribe had two RBIs and the Los Angeles Dodgers earned their 10,000th win in franchise history, 6-4 over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.

Greinke struck out six and didn't allow an earned run through drizzling rain and temperatures that dipped into the 30s by the end of the game.

With the bases loaded and the Twins trailing 5-1 in the seventh, reliever Chris Withrow got Trevor Plouffe to pop out to shortstop on a 3-0 pitch to end the threat.

Plouffe's two-run double in the ninth made it 6-4, but Kenley Jansen retired Chris Colabello to earn his 10th save in 12 chances.

The Dodgers join the Giants, Cubs and Braves as the only franchises to win 10,000 games.
