PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have set a dubious record: most strikeouts by batters in a season.

Arizona reached 1,400 strikeouts in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s game against Colorado when Adam LaRoche swung through strike three against Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. Milwaukee set the previous record of 1,399 in 2001.

The Diamondbacks had 1,298 strikeouts last season to rank 10th, and the 2008 team is 11th with 1,287 Ks.

Third baseman Mark Reynolds has been Arizona’s most frequent whiffer this season with 201, 22 short of the record he set last year. Reynolds also had the previous record, with 204 in 2008.
