Teams with Same Linescore in Consecutive Games

Friend of the VORG James Smyth, Wednesday afternoon …

Now I have my own “Bat signal”?  Cool!

So, using the Retrosheet gamelogs, I’ve determined that the Yankees tied a record for most consecutive games with the same R-H-E (3). Here are the three games in question:

Monday’s game

Tuesday’s game

Wednesday’s game

Its been done five times previously, as follows:

DATE TEAM GM# R-H-E
19570621 PIT 62 3-10-0
19570622 PIT 63 3-10-0
19570623 PIT 64 3-10-0
 
DATE TEAM GM# R-H-E
19650609 DET 50 4-8-1
19650611 DET 51 4-8-1
19650611 DET 52 4-8-1
 
DATE TEAM GM# R-H-E
19800920 LAN 148 2-7-1
19800921 LAN 149 2-7-1
19800922 LAN 150 2-7-1
DATE TEAM GM# R-H-E
19910508 LAN 26 3-9-0
19910510 LAN 27 3-9-0
19910511 LAN 28 3-9-0
DATE TEAM GM# R-H-E
20080806 PIT 114 2-7-0
20080808 PIT 115 2-7-0
20080809 PIT 116 2-7-0

The Yankees DID become the first team to have the same linescore three straight games against the same opponent in a three-game series.
