Did you know that Pat Hentgen, 20-10 in 1996, was the second pitcher in Toronto Blue Jays history to put together a 20-win season? In 1992, Jack Morris went 21-6 to inaugurate the club and since then several other pitchers have joined ( Roger Clemens , Roy Halladay , David Wells ), but as of today, only Hentgen had thrown more than nine complete games during his 20-win season.

Did you know that Pat Hentgen broke the Blue Jays strikeouts in a game record on May 3, 1994 ? Pete Vuckovich set the team record with 12 Ks on June 26, 1977 , was tied by Jim Clancy on April 19, 1988 , tied again by Dave Stieb on August 22, 1988 , then tied yet again by Tom Candiotti on August 8, 1991 . Hentgen broke the mark, set the new plateau at fourteen (which was tied four times), but only held the record until August 15, 1998 , when Roger Clemens reached the fifteen mark.

Did you know that Pat Hentgen was one of seven active pitchers (in 1996) with a 20-win season who had a career minor league losing record? The others were Kevin Brown (13-21), Tom Glavine (29-32), Jose Lima (37-53), Brad Radke (30-34), John Smoltz (21-25) and David Wells (21-27).

In 1996, Pat Hentgen won 20-games (#2 on Top 25 ), had a 3.22 ERA (#2 on Top 25 ), struck out 177 batters (#7 on Top 25 ), and led all American League pitchers in complete games ( Top 25 ) and shutouts ( Top 25 ). For his efforts, the writers awarded him with a Cy Young Award -- the first ever for a Toronto Blue Jays pitcher.

Pat Hentgen | The Standard Speaker | November 13, 1996 (Page 25)

Pat Hentgen struck out eight batters eight times in his career, nine batters six times in his career, ten batters six times in his career, and on May 3, 1994 , he had a career high fourteen strikeout game which was also the fewest hits (2) he ever allowed in any complete game he ever pitched.
