Is this a significant record?

2008 UD #74

Cubs closer Carlos Marmol struck out the side yesterday  to close out a Cubs win over the Cardinals.  In the process he raised his strikeout total for the season to 131, surpassing the previous Cubs record of 129 held by Bruce Sutter.

1980 Topps #17

Is this a significant achievement?  I'd say yes.  The record stood for 33 years.  The previous record holder is in the Hall of Fame.  I'll add that while Sutter needed 107 innings, Marmol took only 74.
