Happy Striderday, Braves country! Spencer Strider looks to finish the regular season with the Braves single-season strikeout record in game 161 for the Braves. He’s two behind John Smoltz’s mark and looks to join all the other record setters on the 2023 team.
In addition to the single-season K mark, Strider is seeking a his league-leading 20th win, too. He will be faced by Joan Adon (2-4, 6.42).
The Braves still need three home runs to tie, and four to set the all-time MLB record. Ozzie Albies needs to reach 35, which would make him the fifth Brave with 35. Let’s set some more records tonight, boys. Happy Striderday!
