On June 4, 1968, Don Drysdale pitches his sixth straight shutout-a major league record-and also sets a record for consecutive scoreless innings. Drysdale extends his string to 54 innings, breaking Carl Hubbell’s record. Drysdale will extend the streak to 58 and two-thirds innings before it ends. Drysdale’s mark will eventually be broken in 1988, when Orel Hershiser hurls 59 scoreless innings.
