Pirates finally allow a run

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015


After tossing 35 straight scoreless innings, the Pirates finally surrendered a run Wednesday night.

According to Pirates.com, “the 2015 run of 35 zeros ranks fourth in franchise history, trailing only the 1903 (51 innings), 1931 (45) and 1972 (36) clubs.

The 1903 Pirates still own the longest scoreless streak in Major League history, having tossed 51 consecutive shutout innings. They are also the only team in big league history to throw six shutouts in a seven-game stretch. In fact, they blanked the opposition for six straight games from June 2-8.”
