Former Tiger reaches historical milestone amidst rookie season


Former Clemson Tiger and current Atlanta Braves pitcher Spencer Strider hit another major career milestone amidst his team's 5-2 win and series sweep over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday at Truist Park.

En route to his eleventh win of the season on Sunday, Strider recorded ten strikeouts through six innings of work, which earned the rookie his sixth double-digit strikeout performance this season. With his outing on Sunday, the right hander becomes the first rookie in the Modern Era (since 1900) to record a 200-strikeout season.

Strider also becomes the fastest pitcher in MLB history to reach 200 strikeouts, doing so in exactly 130 innings and surpassing the previous record of 130 2/3 innings, which was set by Hall of Famer Randy Johnson back in 2001.

In his first full season with the Braves, Strider has boasted a 2.67 ERA, 202 strikeouts, and an 11-5 record in his 31 game appearances and 20 starts.
