Ben Sheets set a Milwaukee franchise record by striking out 18 in a 4-1 win for the Brewers over the Braves. 18 strikeouts is the most in the majors in the last 3 years. The league record for strikeouts in a game is 20, last time that mark was reached was by the Big Unit, Randy Johnson in 2001.
 

The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE - Everything was working for Ben Sheets on Sunday, even the shadows.

Sheets struck out a franchise-record 18 - the most in the majors in three years - leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

"This place, with day games, hitters can't see the ball," Milwaukee catcher Chad Moeller said. "I was proof of that, also."


Comments:
Wow, guess that would cut down on home runs if they can't see the ball to hit it. I do not understand why they play games during odd lighting like that. Its a transient thing, only an hour or so. Start early, start late, but don't make it difficult for the batters.

Thats unreal 18. The braves have some decent players and to do it against them is pretty good.

Accordig to the report his best was 10 k's before this. So he well topped that.

Also he had 116 pitches, 91 for strikes and he threw a first-pitch strike to 17 of the first 20 hitters he faced.

Amazing!

Sounds like the lighting in the place helped him out a bit, too.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have always felt comfortable at Miller Park — until they faced Ben Sheets. Sheets outdid Jeff Weaver, allowing one run on four hits over seven innings, and the Milwaukee Brewers sent the Dodgers to their 11th loss in 13 games, 3-1 Thursday.
