Bobby Jenks hightailed it out of the White Sox clubhouse about as fast as he's been setting down batters lately. The Chicago closer retired the side in the ninth Friday night in the White Sox 5-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners, his 33rd save in 38 chances. He's set down 38 straight batters, tying David Wells' American League record set in 1998 with the New York Yankees.
It's the fourth-longest streak in major league history.

For the record, ESPN cannot confirm that there is pitcher named Jenks pitching for a team outside of New York-Boston about to set a record...so don't expect Chris Berman to believe it either.

Very underrated streak that Jenks is going on. I hope Bobby breaks it. His feat is pretty amazing.

Go Bobby Jenks, he is certainly underrated in the east coast market.

Wait til that East coast market backs up to his place with a dumptruck full of money. Being the type of guy Jenks is, I think he would be willing to stay here though.
