Tampa Bay has won 9 straight wins since the opening.
Tampa Bay won 11-0 with 12 hits in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) Oakland home game held in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA on the 10th.
The 9-game winning streak at the start of the regular season is the first in 20 years since Kansas City in 2003.
If Tampa Bay adds 2 consecutive wins, it will rise to the joint 3rd place with the most consecutive wins in the MLB opening, and if it adds 4 consecutive wins, it will tie the record for the most consecutive wins. The most consecutive wins in MLB history are 13, set by Atlanta in 1982 and Milwaukee in 1987.
During the winning streak, Tampa Bay only allowed 18 points while scoring 75 points. The goal difference is 57 points. It was the first time since the St. Louis Maroons (+78 points) and New York Gothams (+63 points) in 1884 that the score-loss difference of more than 50 points was set in nine games after the opening.스포츠토토
In addition, Tampa Bay won by 4 or more points in all 9 games after the opening. It is the first time since the New York Yankees (10 consecutive wins) in 1939 that a team has won more than 9 consecutive wins by 4 points or more since opening.
In addition, Tampa Bay defeated Oakland 11-0 within two days, setting a record for two consecutive shutout victories with 10 or more points. If Tampa Bay wins against Boston on the 11th with a scoreless score of 10 points or more, it will become the first team since the New York Giants in 1885 to record shutouts of 10 points or more in three consecutive games.
The game was divided in an instant. Tampa Bay scored 4 points in the attack at the end of the 4th inning, leading 1-0, and seized the victory.
Tampa Bay took the opportunity to get 2nd and 1st and 2nd base with a ball hit by lead batter Isaac Paredes and an infield hit from Arold Ramirez on 3rd base. Afterwards, Christian Betancourt, the follow-up hitter, hit a shortstop grounder, and the inning seemed to end. However, opposing shortstop Aledimis Dias threw to second base, and Paredes, a runner on first base, made a quick-footed safe from second base and scored. And the follow-up hitter, Brandon Lowe, exploded a grand slam home run that went over the left wall, driving the wedge of victory.
Tampa Bay catcher Betancourt, who played in the KBO League NC, contributed to the team’s victory with 1 hit and 2 points in 4 at-bats.
