Obviously 9 IP and 0 runs would get more wins than 7/2.

Raphy, I assumed Fabio was asking if any team has had 4 straight CG at any time, not just in the postseason. Unsurprisingly, the answer is no -- it appears several teams have had back-to-back CGs, but no more than that. The last team to have 4 in a row was Boston in 1992 (G. Harris, Darwin, Viola, Clemens). The last with more than that was Oakland in 1981, and the longest in the Retrosheet era is Detroit '68 with 12. There's no question that there are longer streaks before that -- almost every start was completed back in the 1880s.

Dave I disagree. Just today I was looking at players who threw 2 consecutive 1 hitters.

In the 3 years since the White Sox threw 4 complete games, there has been 1 post-season complete game.

I started fooling around with Santana, Lincecum and Webb for 2008 and 7/2 came in low, 6/3 came in close. 7/3 also came close. 6/3 came in high. So it seems that its a horse race between 6/2 and 7/3.

Which pitchers have the most 3 hit games in the modern era? The other day, I noticed that Carlos Zambrano went 3 for 4, and although you've discussed his RBI exploits in the past, I can remember him having quite a few 3 hit games now.

I don't call 1-2 games a "streak".

How close is that to a record?
Most players in one season for one team with a hitting streak of 20 (or another total) games or more...
