Harang ties Dodgers record with 9 straight Ks
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dodgers pitcher Aaron Harang has struck out nine straight batters, tying a franchise record for one game.
Harang gave up a leadoff single to Cameron Maybin before striking out the next nine San Diego Padres batters Friday night, matching Johnny Podres' club record set against the Philadelphia Phillies on July 2, 1962. Harang's streak ended when Will Venable homered leading off the fourth.
Hall of Famer Tom Seaver set the major league record with 10 consecutive strikeouts for the New York Mets against the Padres on April 22, 1970. Seaver fanned the final 10 San Diego batters in that game.
Harang pitched for the Padres last season.
