Latos' record streak ends
Posted on: September 12, 2010 5:04 pm
The streak is over for Padres right-hander Mat Latos.
Entering today's huge start against the Giants, Latos had gone a major-league record 15 consecutive starts pitching five or more innings with two or fewer runs allowed. He gave up two-run homer to Buster Posey in the first inning, then gave up a third run on a sacrifice fly in the third.
During his amazing run, Latos, a 22-year-old in his second season, went 9-1 with a 1.49 ERA. He entered today's game leading the National League in ERA at 2.21.
