Top 10 Games of the Year - No. 3

Every Monday, Minor Matters will run down the top 10 games of the Thunder's 2010 season. In a year that saw eight of Baseball America's 16 pitchers (excluding Mike Dunn and Arodys Vizcaino, who were out of the organization) in their top 30, not to mention Austin Romine and Brandon Laird, there are plenty of good choices to go around.

No. 3 - Adam Warren strikes out 15

After joining the Thunder on July 16, Adam Warren made his signature start in a Thunder uniform. He fanned 15 members of the Bowie Baysox that night, breaking Shannon Withem's 16-year-old team mark.

He fanned one in the first inning, three in the second, two in the third, three in the fourth, none in the fifth, three in the sixth and three in the seventh.

REACTION: “Outstanding performance. I have not seen a pitching performance like that in a long time. … That’s pretty good stuff. That’s major league-type stuff, front-line, major league, first-division, pennant contending team-type stuff.” -- Tony Franklin

“I had no idea about the record. I think I struck out the side one inning and started to think about it. When I came out after the seventh inning, someone came up and told me. It’s neat to be in the history books.” -- Adam Warren

AFTERWARD: Warren didn't come close to topping that record in his final three regular-season starts, but he did fan 10 in just six innings in relief of Andy Pettitte in Game 2 of the Eastern League Division Series.
