Reds bullpen sets MLB record by giving up run in 21st game

Share article

 

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds bullpen has set a major league record by giving up a run for the 21st consecutive game.

Kelby Tomlinson's RBI infield single off Caleb Cotham put the Giants up 2-1 in the eighth inning on Tuesday night, the 21st straight game in which the Reds' bullpen allowed at least one run. The Reds had been tied with the 2013 Colorado Rockies for the major league record since 1900.

The Reds' bullpen is by far the worst in the majors. It came into the game with a 6.54 ERA, allowing 69 runs in 95 innings with 54 walks — all the most in the majors. Reds relievers have allowed 22 homers in 27 games, also the most in the majors.
