Cecil tied the major league record for consecutive games without allowing an earned run in Monday's 5-3 win against the Rays, Sun Times Network reports.

Cecil completed his 38th consecutive regular season appearance without allowing an earned run, tying Craig Kimbrel for the record. The record highlights the lefty's tremendous turnaround since he was dismissed as the team's closer last June. The 29-year-old also holds the club record for consecutive batters faced without allowing a hit --- he set down 40 hitters in a row in 2013.
