What in the name of Vladimir Shpunt was that?
Facing the San Diego Padres in Dodger Stadium, Aaron Harang set an all-time franchise record by striking out nine consecutive batters on Friday night.
This is the same Harang who lasted only 4 1/3 innings in his Dodgers debut last week. The same Harang with a career earned-run average of 4.26.
Harang broke the old record of eight, which was established by World Series hero Johnny Podres on July 2, 1962, in Dodger Stadium against the Philadelphia Phillies.
