On this date: Santana notches 17 Ks


On this date in 2007: Johan Santana wheels and deals, striking out 17 batters and leading the way to a 1-0 victory over the Texas Rangers. Kevin Millwood allowed a solo shot to Michael Cuddyer for the lone run of the game.

The K parade included a strikeout each by Sammy Sosa and Nelson Cruz, three strikeouts each by Marlon Byrd and Brad Wilkerson, and four strikeouts by Michael Young.

When all said and done, Santana left the mound after the eighth inning allowing only two hits and no walks on 112 pitches. (And no, he did not strike out eight in a row.)

Santana still holds the team record for most strikeouts by one Twins pitcher in a game.
