The Giants just finished an amazing streak of 18 straight games without allowing more than 3 runs. Check out the longest such streaks since 1920:
The Giants have the longest streak within one season since 1920. Elias has reported that the White Sox had 20 straight such games in the 1917 season.
A few interesting things:
- Despite allowing no more than 3 runs and an average of just 1.4 runs per game over the streak, the Giants still went "only" 12-6, not as good a record as might be expected.
- The 1986 Yankees allowed 11 homers in 16 games and still didn't give up more than 3 runs in any of them--wow.
- The A's 1981 streak might be the most impressive one here. They went 15-1 over 16 games while allowing an average of just 1.4 runs per game.
