Jack Flaherty Ties American League Record

In a riveting display of pitching prowess, Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jack Flaherty electrified the crowd by tying an American League record for consecutive strikeouts to start a game. Facing his former team, the St. Louis Cardinals, on a crisp Tuesday evening, Flaherty unleashed a series of pitches that left the Cardinals’ hitters bewildered and struck out the first seven batters he faced.

Record-Setting Company

This remarkable achievement places him alongside notable AL pitchers like Joe Cowley, Carlos Rodon, Blake Snell, and Luis Castillo, who have all reached this milestone in past seasons.

Flaherty’s performance was not only a personal triumph but also a moment of high drama as he approached the MLB record of nine consecutive strikeouts held by Pablo Lopez.

Wasted Performance

However, the streak ended when the next batter grounded out to shortstop, leaving him just short of setting a new standard. Despite the Tigers’ bullpen giving up two runs in the ninth inning, resulting in a 2-1 loss, Flaherty’s electrifying start remained the highlight of the game.
