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
Harang pitched for the Padres last season.
