Today the Cubs won again. It was their fourth straight game they won by at least 6 runs. I had to check to see when that last happened.
B-ref is great for checking things like that. Each team's main page links to their schedule, and the right hand margin is a hash marker telling you how long their current win/loss streak is.
Upon checking, the last time they did this was . . . well, I got sick of checking after 1906. They hadn't done it in all that time, unless I missed something. This week the Cubs did something they haven't done in over a century. Wow.
Still, the first week of June 1930 might've been a more impressive stretch, though.
