Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK — The Los An­ge­les Dodgers have re­called re­liever Yimi Gar­cia from Triple-A Ok­la­homa City, giv­ing them a fresh arm in the bullpen. The team also ac­ti­vated Al­lS­tar ace Zack Greinke from the pa­ter­nity list to start Sun­day against the New York Mets. Greinke en­tered with a score­less streak of 43 2-3 in­nings, long­est in the ma­jors since Orel Her­shiser set the ma­jor league record of 59 for the Dodgers in 1988. Greinke orig­i­nally was sched­uled to pitch Fri­day, but he went to Los An­ge­les to be with his wife, Emily, on Thurs­day night for the birth of their first child, Bode Ni­cholas. The right-han­der, who was lead­ing the ma­jors with a 1.30 ERA, re­joined the team this week­end at Citi Field.
