Well, the Orioles did sweep three from Toronto in Baltimore to end last season.
But this year, as most are well aware, the O’s are 0-12 vs. the Blue Jays as they begin this series here tonight at Camden Yards.
That is the current longest win streak in the bigs by one team over another.
MLB’s longest current win streaks:
*Toronto with 12 straight vs. the Orioles.
*San Diego with 9 straight vs. Pittsburgh.
*Oakland with 9 straight vs. Pittsburgh.
*Florida with 8 straight vs. Toronto.
The O’s longest losing streak ever vs. the Jays is 13 and could be tied tonight. They dropped 13 in a row April 11, 1999 to May 10, 2000.
The last time a club went 13-0 vs. one opponent in a season was when Atlanta did that vs. Colorado in 1993.
After going 1-8 in Baltimore last year, the Jays are 6-0 here in 2010. It’s their longest win streak in Baltimore since taking six in a row from April 24 to September 27, 2004.
