Best Answer

He did it twice. The first time was against the Seattle Mariners at Fenway Park on April 29, 1986. Clemens pitched a complete nine-inning game and defeated the Mariners 3-1.

Ten years later, on September 18, 1996, Clemens duplicated his record by striking out 20 batters in a nine-inning game against the Detroit Tigers. It was one of his final games with the Red Sox.

The only other pitcher to strike out 20 batters in nine innings was Kerry Wood, then with the Chicago Cubs, who fanned that many Houston Astros on May 6, 1998.

Just over three years later, on May 8, 2001 Randy Johnson of the Arizona Diamondbacks struck out 20 Cincinnati Reds batters, but he did it over 11 innings. As a result, he missed tying Clemens and Wood for the record. Arizona won 4-3.

The most strikeouts in a game was set by pitcher Tom Cheney of the Washington Senators, who struck out 21 Baltimore Orioles on September 12, 1962. But Cheney accomplished the feat in 16 innings.
