On September 18, 2000 — Pitching a one-hitter against the Yankees, Indian hurler Bartolo Colon nearly ends the longest streak in major league history of a team not being held hitless by its opponents. The Bronx Bombers have not been denied a hit in a game since Hoyt Wilhelm did it on September 9, 1958 spanning a total of 6,637 contests.
