Number 3: The inning streak

During the latter portion of the streak, there was a time in which the Arizona Diamondbacks had not trailed their opponent for 97 straight innings.

It ended in the first inning of Wednesday’s game against the Dodgers.

This is second all time tied with the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers, who went on to lose the World Series in seven games to the New York Yankees.

The 1947 Dodgers were also well known for being the team to break the color barrier with Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson debuting that season.

This 97 inning streak is only three innings behind the 1942 New York Yankees so the Diamondbacks had done something that has not been done in over 70 years.

The all-time record is held by the Oakland Athletics with 102 innings.
