Consecutive Scoreless Innings to Start a MLB Career?

Rate this Entry
Hey all,

Just in case you start counting Andrew Alber's scoreless inning streak, the record for consecutive scoreless innings to start a major league career is 39. Brad Ziegler posted that number for the Oakland Athletics from May 31 to August 14 of 2008. I think Caleb Thielbar went 20 innings without giving up a run to start his career. Thielbar did set the record for consecutive scoreless appearances as a Twin. Albers is currently at 17.1 scoreless innings.

Any idea of when the streak ends? Predictions?

    What is the record for a starting pitcher? Being a starter has to make this a better feat for Albers.

    I know I read that Anibal Sanchez is the last guy to go this long as a starter. I don't know what the record is, though.
