Cubs Retain Single-Season Strikeout Record

The Cubs’ 2003 pitching record for most strikeouts in a single season is safe for now.

The Brewers, however, entered its final regular season game just 9 strikeouts away from eclipsing the Cubs’ mark of 1,404 K’s.

Six Brewers pitchers combined for 6 strikeouts against the Padres Wednesday night, leaving the staff 3 punchouts shy of setting the new mark.

The biggest break for Chicago was the decision of Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke’s to sit his ace pitcher, and strikeout master, Yovani Gallardo. The right-hander finished the season with 204 K’s, 6th most in the National League.
