This Day in Baseball History
On May 22, 1911, Clifford Curtis of the Boston Braves sets a major league record by losing his 23rd consecutive game. Curtis had begun the streak by losing a game on June 13, 1910. Curtis’ record will eventually be broken by Anthony Young, a luckless right-hander with the New York Mets.
