Zack Greinke and Los Angeles LA Angels Bullpen Combine Tie MLB Record of 20 Strikeouts

Last night, the Los Angeles LA Angels tied the Major League record of 20 strikeouts in a nine inning game in their 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners. They were led by Zack Greinke who had 13 strikeouts after just five innings, but was pulled due to a high pitch count.

Kerry Wood (Chicago Cubs) and Roger Clemens (twice with the Boston Red Sox) are the only pitchers in MLB history to have 20 strikeouts in a single nine inning game. The Angels are the first team to accomplish the feat using more than one pitcher.
