9/22 A’s lose to White Sox 3-4
9/23 Mariners lose to Blue Jays 0-1
9/24 Yankees lose to Red Sox 8-10
9/25 Phillies lose to Mets 2-5
9/26 Twins lose to Tigers 1-5
This all adds up to my all time worst 5 game survivor losing streak. On 9/22 I pick against the White Sox who were on an 8 game losing streak. Oakland led 3-1 after 7, then allowed the White Sox to steal home in the 8th inning and score the tieing and winning runs in the 9th inning as the A’s lost 3-4. On 9/25 the Phillies came in on an 11 game winning streak and the Mets were on a 6 game losing streak. The Phillies lead 2-0 afterr 6, then gave up 5 unanswered in the 7th inning and both streaks ended and my losing streak extended. Then I picked the Twins who had lost the first 2 games in Detroit with a better pitcher on the mound (Duensing). He gives up 5 earned runs in a 5-1 loss and that sweep gets completed. One more thing, notice that my margin of loss keeps increasing everyday, makes me think that this losing streak won’t end for a while!
Beware I’m taking the Rangers today in survivor.
Home run: Albert Pujols
Survivor: Rangers

BTS – Aviles of KC
HR – Sir Albert for the 2nd day in a row
Survivor – Phils

yanksgiantsdevils – When it rains it pours but it is good to get all your losses in a row. If Phils beat Nats tonight, I’ve got 20 wins and 7 losses in Sept with nothing to show for it as I win 5 then lose, win 4 then lose etc. M’s are beating the Rangers.
Who do you like on Tuesday? I’m going with Phils and Oswalt over Nats and Marquis.

Just as you said dragbunt when it rains it pours. A 3 run 7th helped break the streak of increasing losing margins, but my all time worse losing streak has extended to 6. The Mariners have now been responsible on both sides during this losing streak getting shut out with “King Felix” pitching but the worst offense in the mlb scores 7 tonight. Another Texas loss to Seattle on 9/19 broke a 6 game winning streak on my last triple F day. After winning twice with the Twins I haven’t tasted victory since. I now have one chance to avoid a week long losing streak.
