Clemens passes Carlton


 Share

Recommended Posts

Roger Clemens passed Steve Carlton for 2nd place on MLB's all time strikeouts list tonight in Houston's victory over the Pirates. Clemens tied Carlton at 4,136 when he struck out Pittsburgh pitcher Kip Wells on a foul bunt with 2 strikes. Victim #4,137 was Raul Mondesi in the 5th inning. The ball was taken out of play, and Clemens stepped off the mound and tipped his cap to the Houston fans.

He struck out 3 more batters to finish the evening at 4,140 for his career. Clemens won the game to improve to 6-0 on the season, his 316th career victory.

Nolan Ryan is first on the list with an insane 5,714 strikeouts.

Yeah, that's probably a good way to put it. I was just looking at these stats earlier today too. Granted Ryan's 200 games and only 10 wins ahead of Clemens, but I think Roger's stuck at #2.

Clemens has to average about 7-8 strikeouts in each of his starts for the next 6 seasons or so to pass Ryan.

Possible, but I doubt Clemens has 6 or more seasons left in him..and even if he does averaging 7-8 strikeouts per start is no easy feat.

Records or not, it seems like he is having one of the best years he's had in a long time. I don't see him breaking the strikeout record but I can imagine him pitching very well for quite some time.

He won't keep this pace up. It's just his first time through the league, and most of the NL hitters haven't seen him much before. 2nd time around, they'll catch up to him. i see about a 17-18 win season.. ERA around 3-3.50.. and i think he'll pitch one more year

He may be an occassional head-hunter, but his work ethic is amazing. I wish he had not gotten screwed out of his 8th win by the bullpen.

Not bad for a guy Boston said was washed up.

That Dan Dukett or whatever - what a moron... heh.

Guy goes out and wins cy youngs and world championships and he's all washed up. I wish that guy would never get another job in baseball again.
