Continued: One very special 'K' day

Still, Santana had 11 strikeouts after five innings. His only inning without a K was the sixth, but he came back with three in the seventh and three more in the eighth. The crowd noise kept building, as the scoreboard noted the new marks he was setting.

Santana's previous career high for strikeouts was 14, and the previous team record was 15, set four times, the last by Bert Blyleven in 1986.

"That was really good, especially the way everything ended up," Santana said. "We won by one run, and 17 strikeouts is always good. But to see all the fans getting into it, that's pretty special."
