18-K Day for Koufax

April 24, 1962 – Sandy Koufax tied his Dodger team record with 18 strikeouts in a 10-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Koufax also fanned 18 against the Giants at the Coliseum on 8/31/59. Koufax and Ramon Martinez are the only pitchers in Dodger history to record both an 18-strikeout game and a no-hitter during their respective careers.
