"Harang broke Johnny Podres ' previous club mark by striking out nine consecutive batters after Cameron Maybin opened the game with a single on a night when the temperature dipped to 52 degrees after rain fell most of the day. 'I gave up that first hit and was trying to get out of the first inning and the next thing I know we're scoring all those runs in the bottom of the third,' Harang said. Harang and catcher A.J. Ellis had set a pregame goal of getting ahead of the hitters. 'He was on the attack all night long,' Ellis said. 'At six or seven (strikeouts), I started paying attention and checking out the board.' The streak ended when Will Venable homered leading off the fourth on a 3-1 pitch from against Harang. The right-hander, who pitched for the Padres last season, allowed four hits and four runs while walking four. Podres had eight straight strikeouts against the Philadelphia Phillies on July 2, 1962 . Hall of Famer Tom Seaver set the major league record with 10 consecutive strikeouts for the New York Mets against the Padres on April 22, 1970 . Seaver fanned the final 10 San Diego batters in that game." - AP Wire (04/14/12, 'Dodgers' Harang records 9 Ks in a row', Source )
