Beer Helmet! 

Jim Thome has accomplished, to my knowledge, the first Beer Helmet (five-strikeout offensive performance) of 2004. According to my pre-season Beer Helmet odds:
Pullman odds for the first Beer Helmet of the 2004 season:

Jim Thome, 2:1
Pat Burrell, 3.5:1
Richie Sexson, 6:1
Jason Giambi, 6.5:1
Jose Hernandez, 7.5:1
Carlos Pena, 10:1
Jeromy Burnitz, 10:1
Sammy Sosa, 15:1
Rest of Field, 3.5:1
Thome was the favorite to have the first Helmet of the year, and he came through. I should handicap these kinds of things for a living.

Don't forget Geoff Jenkins 6-strikeout performance on June 8. Of course, that was a 17-inning game.

I'm pretty sure Thome is the first 5-K in a 9-inning game.
Thome's was an extra-inning game as well. He was 0 for 8 with 5 K's. I missed Jenkins' game, sadly.
