The Phillies' 10 & 0 Club

Phillies leaders in double-digit strikeout/no walk games.

The Phillies' 10 & 0 Club

Cliff Lee Monday became just the second pitcher in major league history to strike out at least 14 batters and knock in four or more runs in same game (Dwight Gooden, May 11, 1990).

He also recorded his eighth game of double-digit Ks and no walks as a Phillie. That is one less than the club record-holder Curt Schilling, who started twice as often in Phillies pinstripes. Here are Phillies pitchers with two or more such games:

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
