White Sox season set strikeout record

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

CLEVELAND -- Hector Santiago's 10 strikeouts helped the White Sox establish a franchise record for strikeouts in a season. The Sox had 12 in their 11-0 win against the Indians on Monday night, raising their total to 1,225.

The old record was set last season at 1,220.

Santiago's were a season high, and they came in his fourth start. Santiago (4-1) is 2-0 with a 2.51 ERA and a .176 batting average against over his last 17 appearances, including four starts.

Santiago's 10 strikeouts were the most by a Sox rookie since Jason Bere fanned 12 Angels on Sept. 20, 1993.
