Everybody doubted Zack Greinke's skills on the bases, so he stole second with a headfirst slide

In addition to being one of the most dominant hurlers in the game, Zack Greinke can hit. He can also bat-flip with authority, something he's proven on a few occasions.
Did you know, however, that the D-backs' ace can steal bases, too? In Arizona's 7-6 win over the Rockies at Coors Field on Thursday, Greinke caught everybody off-guard with a straight steal of second base. In typical Greinke fashion, it had its own special flair when it comes to his sliding technique, too:

The swipe was Greinke's first of 2016, and the fifth of his career. But to make this even more impressive, Greinke is now a perfect five-for-five all-time. That's right, he's never been caught. In fact, he now has the most stolen bases among active pitchers after Thursday's theft. 
On the pitching side of things, Greinke threw 5 2/3 innings in the game, limiting the Rockies to seven hits and three runs before making his exit. 
Pitching, bat flips, and stolen bases ... there's nothing this man can't do, apparently.
