Marco Estrada set a new career high by striking out 12 opposing batters tonight, a feat that's only been accomplished 27 times in franchise history. Of those 27, Estrada is one of just three to receive a no-decision in the game:

Pitcher Date Opponent IP H R BB K Result
Marco Estrada Tonight Reds 6 5 3 2 12 Reds win, 4-3
Ben McDonald June 16, 1997 Cardinals 8 4 0 1 12 Brewers win, 1-0
Teddy Higuera July 15, 1988 Rangers 8.2 5 2 0 12 Brewers win, 4-2

Five other pitchers have matched this feat and received the loss in the game:

Pitcher Date Opponent K
Ben Sheets August 12, 2004 Braves 13
Teddy Higuera May 19, 1987 White Sox 13
Jamey Wright August 31, 2001 Astros 12
Yovani Gallardo July 1, 2009 Mets 12
Chris Bosio August 13, 1987 Orioles 12

Estrada is the fifth pitcher in the majors this season to strike out 12 in a no decision.
