Dodgers strike out 20 times and win

by Bill Chuck on July 29, 2013

On a Yasiel Puig walkoff homer, the Dodgers topped the Reds 1-0 in 11 innings.

Cincinnati pitchers set a franchise record with 20 strikeouts. Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowicz each fanned three times as the Dodgers established their highest single-game total for strikeouts since moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1958.

You know you are hot when you can whiff 20 times and win the game.
