Lost in the hub bub that was yesterday's game was Danny Duffy's performance. Duffy's nine strikeouts of the first eighteen batters faced was only the 10th time that has been ever done since 1919.

 

After the jump is the list:

Nolan Ryan (10 Ks)

John Henry Johnson (10)

Jordan Zimmerman (9)

John Smoltz (9) (did it twice)

Chad Billingsley (9)

Randy Johnson (9)

Hideo Nomo (9)

Ron Guidry (9)

 

Got to admit, that is a pretty damn impressive list. Now, I have no idea if this event has "signature significance", to coin an old term first used by Bill James - but it's fun to dream that it might.

 

My REAL concern, however, is that the Royals somehow think this was a bad performance because he used 95 pitches or so. Yes, I want Duffy to throw more strikes - but sure as hell NOT at the expense of intentionally ignoring his ability to strikeout batters.
