1986: Roger Clemens 20 K’s in 9 innings

leave a comment »


It was quite a performance.    I recall hearing about it on ESPN  back then:    

On April 29, 1986, in a game against the Seattle Mariners at Fenway Park, Roger Clemens of the Boston Red Sox becomes the first pitcher in Major League Baseball to strike out 20 batters in a nine-inning game.

Ten years later, Clemens repeats the feat, the only player in baseball history to do so.

Clemens had quite a career:   354 Wins, 3.12 ERA & 4,672 K’s.     Time will tell whether or not he gets into the Hall of Fame.
