Giants set NL record nobody wants with another scoreless first inning

Jesse Reed

The San Francisco Giants came into Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on a four-game losing streak. Then they set a National League record nobody wants.

After failing to score a run in the first inning, the Giants made it 23 straight games without a run in the first inning, which is a record.

Chris Archer did allow a couple of baserunners as Gerardo Parra singled to right field and Buster Posey walked. However, Brandon Belt then fouled out to third base and Evan Longoria grounded out to third, ending the inning.

The Giants are not doing a great job in manager Bruce Bochy’s final season and have really gotten into a bad spot as of late. They entered the game with an 8-14 record and have just one win in their last six games.
