Mathewson recorded 28 games with 10 or more strikeouts while pitching for the New York Giants.

Last night, Tim Lincecum established the Giants’ franchise record for most 10 strikeout games by a pitcher. By punching out 12 New York Mets, the wiry right hander established the new mark at 29, an impressive accomplishment considering he has only started 129 games.

Lincecum has led the National League in strikeouts during each of his three full seasons in the majors. At that pace, more than a few franchise and major league records are likely to fall. However, it is a little surprising that the Giants’ mark for 10-strikeout games was so low. After all, the organization boasts such legendary names as Christy Mathewson (the pitcher Lincecum surpassed), Carl Hubbell, and Juan Marichal.

A close examination of the current 10K kings for each organization mostly reveals a host of usual suspects. It should surprise no one that Nolan Ryan sits atop the leader board for three organizations, but the Express isn’t the only pitcher to wear the crown for more than one franchise. Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez also enjoy that distinction. Seeing names like Sandy Koufax, Tom Seaver, Steve Carlton, Walter Johnson, and Bob Gibson preside over their respective team leader boards further illustrates that this particular honor is usually reserved for elite company.

Most Games with 10 Strikeouts by Franchise (click to make larger)

*The White Sox record only dates back to 1919. The season numbers of Ed Walsh strongly suggest that he is the franchise’s record holder.
#Rube Waddell recorded 70 games with 10 or more strikeouts, but the exact amount that occurred with the Athletics could not be determined. However, it is high likely that the total far surpassed the 21 games recorded by both Lefty Grove and Vida Blue.
