I'm not sure about the total by one team... but the most total by one player was Orel Hershiser of The Dodgers when he went 59 innings in a row without giving up a run.AnswerMost consecutive shutout innings pitched by a team: In the National League, the Pittsburgh Pirates, 56 innings, from 6-01-1903 to 6-09-1903. In the American League, the Baltimore Orioles, 54 innings, from 9-01-1974 to 9-07-1974.
The 1969 Mets finished off that season throwing 4 consecutive shutouts and 3 of them against the Phils before ending the season against the Cubbies. I think at that time it was the record for one team throwing consecutive shutout inning against another.
Don Drysdale, a Hall of Fame pitcher for the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers between 1956-1969, holds the MLB record for consecutive shutouts with 6 between May 14, 1968 and June 4, 1968. He broke Walter Johnson's long standing record of consecutive shutout innings, passing Johnson's 56 innings by throwing 58 2/3 of his own. Orel Hershiser threw 59 consecutive shutout innings in 1988 and is the current MLB record holder.
The Baltimore Orioles shut out five straight games in 1995 and kept the opponents scoreless for 48 innings.
Brian Boucher holds the record at 332 minutes or about 5 and a half games. He set the record while playing for the Phoenix Coyotes.
As of 7/22/09 the Phillies have won ten games in a row.
Joe Dimaggio 1941 56 straight games
The longest Opening Day game in major league history was a 15-inning affair played at Cleveland Stadium on April 19, 1960. The Detroit Tigers defeated the Cleveland Indians 4-2.
No, but i do beleive that the longest winning streak ever for MLB was 31 games straight, by the Oakland A's
That was a .506 by the 2005 National League West Division winner San Diego Padres.
Tomorrow the Central High School Lady Lancers of the Philadelphia Public League go for their 100th consecutive league victory. I assume 99 is a record, but tomorrow is 100.
Ron Guidry posted a .893 winning percentage which was the highest in baseball history by a 20 game winner.
Their longest streak of not winning the World Series is 24 years, from 1982 to 2006.
Of the original 8 teams in the National League when the League was founded in 1876, only two remain. They are the Chicago White Stockings, who are now the Chicago Cubs, and the Boston Red Caps, who are now the Atlanta Braves. So the longest rivalry in MLB history is the Cubs vs. the Braves.
