Box Score of the Week

The Cleveland Indians at Seattle Mariners - June 3, 1977


On May 25, 1977, Indians starting pitcher Dennis Eckersley pitched a 12 inning complete game in a win vs. Seattle. He did not allow a hit over the final 7-2/3 innings. 

In his next outing on May 30, Eckersley pitched a no-hitter against the California Angels.

Finally on June 3 (the game I referenced above), Eckersley did not allow a hit until there were 2 outs in the sixth inning. 

Add it all up: Eckersley had a streak of 22-1/3 consecutive hitless innings. That streak is second best all-time, trailing the 25-1/3 consecutive hitless innings once logged by some guy named Cy Young.
