9/14 Marmol's K zone

Cubs closer Carlos Marmol notched his 120th strikeout when he got Matt Holliday out to end Monday’s game. According to Elias Sports Bureau, no reliever has reached that number since 2004 when four pitchers did so: Brad Lidge (157), Francisco Rodriguez (123), B.J. Ryan (122) and Octavio Dotel (122). The only Cubs relief pitcher with that many strikeouts in one season was Bruce Sutter, who fanned 129 in 1977.
