However, it looks like none of them were.

In 1993, the Phillies set a National League record of most consecutive games not shut out, a streak that actually began in the 1992 season. (They didn't come anywhere near the major league record, yet one more great Yankee accomplishment.) They were finally shut out two games after clinching the NL East, and they were even shut out one more time before the season ended. With those two late season whitewashings, they actually ended up being shut out more times in the regular season that year than their World Series opponents, the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blue Jays were only shut out once that season, but it came in mid-season and thus they didn't experience as long a period of not being shut out as the Phillies did.

For what it's worth, the Cardinals got shutout twice in a row *seven* different times in the 1908 season. I don't know if that's the record (though I wouldn't be surprised if it were).

In one streak they went 8-1. In the other streak they went 1-9.
