FOR SALE – PITCHERS WITH 10+ STRIKEOUTS IN 6+ STRAIGHT STARTS

I had to go back to 1999 to compile this Nine to Know of pitchers who have had double digit strikeouts in at least six straight starts, a streak that Chris Sale is currently enjoying.

Nine to Know: Pitchers with 10+ strikeouts in six-plus starts

Sale is on top of this list along with a certain Hall of Fame pitcher who starred for the Red Sox

Like Sale, Pedro is on the list twice while the Big Unit takes up four slots
