Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the bottom of the ninth Wednesday in the Braves' 4-0 win over the Pirates.

Kimbrel did allow a hit, but by striking out three of four batters, he ended the year with 116 strikeouts of 231 batters faced. He's the first pitcher ever to throw more than a handful of innings and strike out more than half of the batters he faced.
