MLB.com: Shields sets Rays record with 15 K’s in CG loss

All told, Shields struck out 15 to set a new franchise record for strikeouts in a single game. In addition, Shields pitched his third complete game of the season, facing just 29 batters and walking none while using just 106 pitches.

I don’t think the Rays are going to deal Shields in the offseason but if they do he went out with a bang.

That brings the Rays up to 1373 strikeouts for the season, they were already in second place all time but unless they manage to strike out 31 batters tomorrow they’ll fall short of the 2003 Cubs.

Mark Reynolds should get them halfway there... could the Orioles sign Adam Dunn for the day too?

It was the highest game score ever in a loss, in the live ball era. Pretty impressive to K 15 guys and only throw 106 pitches.

Of the 9 inning variety anyway. Warren Spahn scored 97 in his 16 inning loss to Juan Marichal in 1963.

What does it say about the Orioles, that they would find a way to win a game like this?

What a season for Chris Davis. That ball was murdered.

Huh? The Brewers have 1,396. They could get it done tonight, although Gallardo was scratched. (They need eight to tie.)

I had no idea that the Brewers had a high total this year, I had only seen stories about the Rays (who broke the AL record recently).
