On June 4 1968 — The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Don Drysdale pitches his sixth straight shutout, defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5 – 0, and establishes two new major league records. Drysdale tops Doc White’s 64-year-old mark of five shutouts, and with 54 scoreless innings, he breaks Carl Hubbell’s National League string, set in 1933, by one-third, en route to a new record mark of 58 2/3 innings.
