At The Crossroads, II
The Royals ran their record to 8-0 tonight with a 1-0 masterpiece by Runelvys Hernandez.
If the Royals win one more, they will do something that no one has done since the 1990 Reds: start the season with a nine-game win streak.
There are just seven teams to win more than nine straight at the start.
Meanwhile, the Tigers became the first team to ever start the year 0-9 for two consecutive seasons. They did it in spectacular shutout fashion, 5-0 to the Pale Hose and ever-subpar Esteban Loaiza.
There are only eight teams with longer streaks. But the Orioles' record of 21 straight losses still seems safe.
