If this was Zack Greinke's final start for the Milwaukee Brewers, it certainly was a memorable one.

The right-hander, who is likely to be traded sometime before the July 31 deadline if he doesn't accept the Brewers' contract-extension offer, threw seven dominant innings, made several highly athletic plays defensively and hit a home run in his return to the rotation Tuesday night.

The bullpen failed to follow Greinke's lead, however, and it cost the Brewers dearly for the second consecutive night.
