On June 7 2012 — Michael McKenry breaks Aroldis Chapman’s club-record streak of 24 straight scoreless appearances from the start of the season when he drives in a run with a 10th-inning double against the Cincinnati Reds’ fireballer. Chapman had pitched 29 innings without allowing a run before the Pirates’ back-up catcher gets to him, and he is charged with the 5 – 4 loss. Chapman hadn’t even allowed a hit since May 17th before Clint Barmes and McKenry hit the back-to-back doubles.
