I recall that last year the Sox broke the record for most games led at one point to start a season. This year the Sox have played 46 games to date and haven't gotten shut out yet. Last year they made it to May 23rd when they were 1st shut out by the Angels; 45 games. If you start after the last time we've been shut out the streak is 57 and if you include the postseason that would be 69. Anyone know the record for consecutive games without getting shut out?

I don't know the record but I'm glad I'm not the only one to observe this... :D:

I don't know if my memory is 100% accurate on this, but I recall the 1977 White Sox going deep into August without being shut out, which may be the team record.

I also think I heard that the 1927 NYY were not shut out at all.

Should have checked Baseball Reference before I posted this.

1927 Yankeees were shut out once, game 128 on 9/3/27. The 1977 White Sox were better, not being shut out until game 137 on 9/8/77, but were shut out once again a week later, for two all season.

I seem to remember back in '77 when the Sox were making that shutout-free run, that the media was saying that only 3 teams in MLB history when the whole season w/out being shutout. I don't remember which teams those were (I was just a little kid in '77)

The 1999 Reds were never shut out and they weren't even a playoff team. It's nice, but it's not a major accomplishment.

Me, I just want one run more than the other team. Records like this are nice but mean nothing!

Looks like the only other teams this year who haven't been shut out are the Yankees and Phillies.

I want one or more wins more than the damn Kittens and Toons at the end of the season.

Well now that this has been posted look for us to get shut out in the Toronto series. That's just the way it works.

The 1999 Reds won 96 games. They lost in the one-game playoff with the Mets for the Wild Card. So they didn't technically make the playoffs, but they came very close. And they won more games that year than any Cub team has since 1945.

I seem to remember a similar circumstance surrounding AJ's errorless streak.......
