Sheets' 18-strikeout gem airs tonight

MLB Network is airing a block of All-Time Games this weekend highlighting high-strikeout games and is featuring one that they have not aired before: Ben Sheets’ 18-strikeout performance for the Brewers vs. the Braves in 2004. It’s on at 5:30 p.m. CT on Saturday night.

Other games included in the block of All-Time Games this weekend are Ron Guidry’s 18 strikeouts for the Yankees against the California Angels in 1978; Ramon Martinez’s 18 strikeouts for the Dodgers vs. the Braves in 1990; Roger Clemens’ 20 strikeouts for the Red Sox against the Mariners in 1986; David Cone’s 19-strikeout game for the Mets vs. the Phillies in 1991; and Randy Johnson’s 20 strikeouts for the Diamondbacks against the Reds in 1997.
