1986: Roger Clemens gets 20 strikeouts
Clemens, embarking on an MVP season, was at his best on April 29, against the Mariners. He tied the major league strikeout record with his 19th in the ninth inning, and then rang up Phil Bradley for No. 20, establishing a mark he would match 10 years later. Amazingly, Clemens didnt walk a single batter on his way to a 3-1 victory.
