Guess my reasoning was flawed then. :-D Although I think in today's game it would easier for a reliever to go out and do something like that considering that if a SP goes out and gives up 2-3 runs in a 7 inning outing is "good". :-?

Jack Coombs from the 1910 A's had 53 consecutive. The only modern day AL guy was Luis Tiant. He had a 41 IP streak in '68 and a 40 IP streak in '72.
