Comments on: Losing 3 Extra Inning Games In A Row http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/14796 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: Doug http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/14796/comment-page-1#comment-149095 Sat, 10 Sep 2011 06:36:49 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=14796#comment-149095 After all the gyrations about trying to find a search for consecutive extra-inning losses, just wanted to mention consecutive extra-inning wins is a simple and straight-forward query - you never get a win until your opponent has made all his outs.

Like losses, the longest streak of wins is also 3, and the number of streaks at 29 is also very similar. So, I'm guessing if any loss streaks @37 have been missed, it hasn't been many. Anyway, here are those 3-win streaks.

I end up with 28 streaks, or 27 if you don't count one streak (Phillies, 2006-07) that extended from the end of one season to the beginning of the next.

What is potentially missing is a mixed streak (some home, some away) where one or more of the away losses was a "nobody out in the 10th" scenario.

So, with that caveat, here are those 28 streaks:
PHI 1920-08-14 1920-08-17 BSN,BRO,NYG
PHI 1924-05-24 1924-05-27 STL,BSN
BSN 1925-06-04 1925-06-07 CIN
CHW 1934-06-27 1934-06-29 NYY,DET,CLE
CHC 1938-05-13 1938-05-17 PIT,NYG
DET 1955-07-02 1955-07-04 KCA,CLE
NYY 1960-05-08 1960-05-12 CHW,CLE
NYY 1964-04-16 1964-04-18 BOS,BAL
STL 1965-05-28 1965-05-30 HOU,SFG

Bigbee was 6 for 11 in the game with no extra base hits and no runs scored. Pirate Elmer Jacobs pitched 16 2/3 innings in relief. The game was also the fourth consecutive extra-inning game by the Pirates for a total of 59 innings, a National League record.

On June 17, 1915, Zip Zabel set the record for most innings pitched in relief in one game. He came in relief for Bert Humphries with two out in the first inning, and pitched the final 18 1/3 innings to earn the win over the Brooklyn Robins and opposing pitcher Jeff Pfeffer, who pitched the complete game.

Did not play Aug. 5 to 8.
August 9 home
August 10 home
August 11 doubleheader at home
August 12 at Chicago
August 13 at Chicago
August 14 at Chicago
August 15 home for 1 game vs Cin
August 16 doubleheader in Phil
August 17 doubleheader in Phil
August 18 at Phil. L 2-3 in 14 innings
August 19 ZZZZZZZZ
August 20 at Brooklyn W 1-0 in 10
August 21 at Brooklyn T 1-1 in 13
August 22 at Brooklyn L 5-6 in 22 (new National League mark)
Runners on first and second, runner scores from second on a force out at second while the second baseman held the ball. Second game called after 2 innings because of darkness. Why bother starting it? Gotta be in Boston tomorrow
August 23-25 at Boston

19 games in 17 days, 3 double headers, 1 day off, traveled 5 times, record 6-12-1

I thought the 4 games were in August 1915 first, but I didn't know what date. They played 13 games on 10 straight days according to baseball-reference.com. So I was looking at some old boxscores and I saw that the Pirates played a double header on August 17 vs the Cubs, but baseball-reference.com didn't have one of the games. The newspaper (www.newspaperarchive.com) mentioned something about the Pirate pitcher named Benton in Game 1, who they got from Cincinnatti, but the Cubs filed a protest saying that the Giants claimed they owned him. I found out at baseball-reference that Rube Benton played for the the Reds and the Giants that year but not the Pirates. So the game was eventually negated and the Pirates and Cubs played it from the start later in the year, rather than the Commissioner declaring a forfeit.

You can read about "The Bizarre Career of Rube Benton" in the SABR site.

4/30 2-1
5/1 5-4 (11)
5/2 2-1 (11)
5/4 3-3 (14) yes a tie

“During the 1908 season . . . the Detroit Tigers played in the most consecutive extra-inning games, September 9th through the 13th, five games featuring fifty-four innings.”

Source: Baseball Almanac (see note at bottom of page). Love the start date for that streak, during which the Tigers won two and lost three en route to their second of three straight AL pennants.

My search missed the 2006-2007 Phillies.

Raphy says that at post 3 also. I don't have a subscription so I can't post the list. I don't know if any of these carried over into the next season or they may have been suspended games finished later but in baseball-reference, they go back to the start date.

There were 7 from 1919 to 1961 and 19 from 1962 to 2010.

There's a problem with my search #1, when I set it to visitor, it only counts away games for the streak, so if home games were played in between, it would ignore them. Still, it didn't find a 4 game streak and some of the 3 straight away games were truly consecutive.
