Is A Record And A Mark The Same Thing?

Corbin Burnes did not get the win Monday night agains the Marlins, in fact, he took the loss. But his steak to start the season continued as he did not issue a walk again. He now stands at 49 strikeouts with 0 walks to start the season. He is three strikeouts away from breaking Kenley Jansen’s all-time record for strikeouts in a season before giving up a walk. Czabe ponders whether this is a record or a mark, but Drew has the perfect term. It is a notable achievement, just like Madison Bumgarner’s seven inning no-hitter on Sunday for the Diamondbacks.
