Randy Johnson (9-6) fanned Jeff Cirillo for the second out of the eighth inning, reaching 4,000 in 3,237 1/3 innings, a strikeout-to-inning ratio of 11.12. None of the others had a double-figure ratio, with Ryan's 9.55 the next-best based on 3,844 2/3 innings.

Hate to quibble with your numbers Doc, but I think that ratio is for every 9 innings pitched. Doesn't matter though, it's an amazing achievement.

Congrats to the Big Unit, one of the nicer ballplayers I've met.
