The streaks end here
How well had the Mets’ Jacob deGrom been pitching before the Twins got to him on Tuesday night?
• Had amassed 26 consecutive quality starts (no more than three earned runs allowed in at least six innings of work), tying him with Bob Gibson for the longest streak in history. The Twins had five runs by the end of the third inning. DeGrom’s streak began May 18, 2018.
• Had not given up more than three earned runs in a record 31 consecutive starts.
• Was unscored upon in 14 innings this season and 27 overall dating to last season before Mitch Garver’s leadoff homer in the second.
