From September 7 to 30, the 1916 New York Giants were unbeaten in 26 consecutive games, the longest such streak in major league history. The streak included 25 wins and one tie, a 1-1 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates which was called after nine innings because of rain. The streak took the Giants from playing below .500 to the heart of the pennant race, but they still fell a few games shy of catching the National League leaders.
