Cubs Trivia:

Which Cubs rookie pitcher tied a Major League record by striking out 20 batters on September 25, 1995?

Yeah, it's wrong. 9/25/95 was the day Frank Castillo almost threw a no no, but had it taken away by Bernard Gilkey in the 9th.

Kerry Wood did this in 1998, right? I think Bill Gullickson held the Cubs record before that, and it was sometime in the late 70s or early 80s, with 18 a game.

Our calendar is becoming not so accurate lately.

I knew the date was wrong as soon as I saw it, but hey, I'm just the messenger.

I seem to recall watching Gullickson K 18 batters, but I think it was against the Cubs -- when he was on the Expos?

Some trivia on the Kerry Wood game:

1. Who was the future Cub who got the only Astro hit?
2. Who was the future Cub who k'd 3 times against Kerry?
3. Who was the Cubs catcher?
4. Unrelated to the 20 K Wood game, what left handed pitcher holds the Cubs single game strikeout record - with 12?

I know the answer to 1, 2 or 3 is Scott Servais. No clue which one though...

4. What the hell, umm... Steve Trout.

The answer to 1 and 2 are Ricky Guttierez and Moises Alou, which leaves Scott Servais to be the answer to 3.

#4 is the ageless wonder that is Jamie Moyer.

Gutierrez and Alou are correct! However Servais is not correct.

Trout is not correct. Unless I am completely off on this, Servais is not the correct answer

Yes! Moyer is correct, with 12 Ks. Unfortunately, I'd have to say that is pretty safe for the foreseeable future. Although it would be pretty cool to see that "Wood" had the Cubs strikeout record for both right handed and left handed pitchers.

Ted Lilly must've gotten close to 12 at some point. 10, maybe?
