Pitcher Spencer Strider of the Atlanta Braves, achieved a career high in strikeouts by striking out 16 Colorado Rockies batters.
In addition to his "16 guillotined", the starter with the peculiar mustache, which reminds many fans of the late singer Freddie Mercury, lead singer of the iconic band Queen, only allowed two hits in eight innings of work.
Thanks to the offensive support of Austin Riley, who reached 33 home runs and 86 RBIs, and Michael Harris II, Spencer Strider capped off his superb performance with his ninth win of the season (9-4) and dropped his ERA to 2.67.
