On July 28, 1993 — “That wasn’t even a big monkey that was on my back. It was a zoo. The guys treated it like I had won a World Series game for them.” – Anthony Young, commenting on his teammates’ reaction to his 27-game losing streak being snapped. After a shaky one-inning relief performance, in which he gives up the go-ahead run, Anthony Young’s record-setting 27-game losing streak comes to an abrupt end when the Mets score twice in the ninth for a 5-4 walk-off victory over Florida at Shea Stadium. The infamous streak, which covered a span of 81 appearances over two seasons, included 14 losses as a starter and 13 as a reliever.
