Red Sox Had Impressive Streak Snapped In Shutout Loss Vs. Blue Jays


You wouldn’t be able to tell from their last 10 games or so, but it’s been an unbelievable two-year stretch for the Boston Red Sox offense.

The Red Sox have put up runs at a monumental clip over the past two seasons. And a massive part of that has been the team’s ability to club extra-base hits to spark big innings.

But all good things must come to an end, and Wednesday’s 8-0 shutout loss against the Toronto Blue Jays marked the end of one of Boston’s most impressive streaks.

The Red Sox did not record an extra-base hit for the first time in 159 games, as they were held to just two singles in the loss. The streak was the fourth-longest in MLB history, according to The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham.

The fact that Boston nearly went an entire season’s worth of games with an extra-base hit is downright phenomenal. But it also isn’t surprising considering Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts sit 1-2 in MLB in doubles this season.
