Yanks, Cubs, set new single-game K record
Permalink  
 


The New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs combined for a new single-game record for strikeouts, taking the slow walk back to the dugout 48 times in New York's 5-4 18-inning victory Sunday at Wrigley Field.

The previous record was 43, in a 1971 20-inning affair between the California Angels and Oakland A's.

Aaron Hicks and Chase Headley led the parade of fans Sunday, each striking out four times for the Yankees.  As a team, New York batters struck out 22 times, while Chicago topped that total with 26 of their own.

Five Cubs -- Kyle Schwarber, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Addison Russell and Willson Contreras -- each whiffed three times apiece. 

Here's the box score:

I'm surprised the previous record went back to 1971

I did some digging on that game.

The A's won, 1-0, on a walkoff single by Angel Mangual, scoring Curt Blefary with two outs in the 20th inning.

Vida Blue struck out 17 in 11 innings, while Angels' starter Rudy May fanned 13 in 12 innings.  Blue surrendered seven hits and no walks.  May allowed just three hits to the A's, while walking six, in his stint.

Billy Cowan struck out six times, and Tony Conigliaro was one behind him, with five.

More fun: Rollie Fingers followed Blue with seven innings of two-hit, seven-K relief.  Eddie Fisher tossed five scoreless for the Angels, in relief of May.

Ah-h-h-h-h-h...they don't make 'em like that any more. hmm

And I watched the whole game lolol.....not as entertaining as the whole game I watched on the 4th of July between the Mets and Braves....the "Rick Camp Game".....I still remember just before they signed off, at like 4am, the fireworks going off and the announcers were laughing their butts off......
