Don Drysdale in 1968 went 58+ innings without giving up a run. Most people felt this would last forever. What he forgot to do was to tell the Dodger management not to draft a pitcher named Orel Hershiser. In 1988 Orel proceeded to go 59 innings without giving up a run. As far as I know, this record still stands.This year Zack Greinke, also of the Dodgers, went 45+ innings without giving up a run. During his streak and beyond, he faced 277 right-handed batters and held them to a .105 batting average. He also only walked 4 batters during that time. At the time this article was written, Greinke had a 1.69 ERA and 18 wins. If you want to make pitching history, the Dodger organization is a good place to do so. Remember, they also had a guy named Koufax.
