Longest winning streaks in MLB, 2022

  1. Yankees, 10 video games (4/22-active)
  2. Marlins, 7 video games (4/23-5/1)
  3. Twins, 7 video games (4/21-4/28)
  4. Dodgers, 7 video games (4/12-4/18)
  5. Angels, 6 video games (4/24-4/29)

By any affordable analysis, Gleyber Torres was the essential gamer. He notched a set of hits, including his 3rd crowning achievement of the project, and drove in all 3 Yankees runs. The last, and eventually the definitive, began a ninth-inning single off Yimi Garcia that plated Tim Locastro. (Locastro, who had actually initially looked into the video game to pinch-run for Giancarlo Stanton, established the run by taking 2nd base.)

Torres is now striking .239/.274/.448 on the project. He got in the night with a seasonal line of .222/.261/.397, helpful for a 92 OPS+.

Stanton offered among the other significant highlights from Monday night’s video game. In the 2nd inning, he robbed Blue Jays 3rd baseman Matt Chapman of additional bases with a jumping grab at the right-field wall. Take an appearance:

The Yankees had actually formerly constructed their winning streak with successive three-game sweeps of the Cleveland Guardians, Baltimore Orioles, and Kansas City Royals. Over the course of the 10 video games, the Yankees have actually outscored challengers 70-30. That 40-run distinction assists to describe why the Yankees, since this writing, have the AL’s finest run differential. 

Only the Los Angeles Dodgers, at plus-47, are much better general. (It need to be kept in mind that the Dodgers have actually played 2 less video games than the Yankees need to date.)
