Cleveland Indians reliever Andrew Miller's incredible postseason is going down in the MLB history books. 

In game four of the World Series on Saturday, Miller set a new single playoff strikeout record by a reliever after punching out the Chicago Cubs' Ben Zobrist in the eighth inning for his 29th strikeout this postseason. 

Francisco Rodriguez previously held the record of 28, set with the 2002 Anaheim Angels.

Miller saw his record-breaking scoreless-inning streak come to an end after Dexter Fowler hit a solo homer to begin the inning.

The 31-year-old southpaw pitched 16 innings without allowing a run, the most by a relief pitcher in single postseason (Goose Gossage: 14 1/3, 1981).
