Video: Zack Greinke hits homer, shows off impressive bat-flipping skills
Zack Greinke got the win this afternoon against the Phillies, but he wasn’t at his best on the mound, allowing six runs (five of them in the first inning) over six innings of work. However, he had a heck of a day with the bat, finishing 3-for-3 with his fifth career home run. Watch his solo shot and bat-flip against David Buchanan:

You might think that Greinke learned his bat-flipping skills by watching Yasiel Puig or Juan Uribe. On the contrary, he says.
Zack Greinke said he started flipping his bat after hits with the Brewers. "They encouraged bat flips," he said.— J.P. Hoornstra (@jphoornstra) August 6, 2015
Just in case there’s any doubt remaining, Zack Greinke is the best.
