The Miami Marlins tie the record for most consecutive interleague wins

The Marlins beat the Rangers 8-5 last night. They also tied a record: it was their 13th consecutive interleague win, dating back to last season.

The other teams with 13-straight interleague wins? The New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. The kicker: they both did it in 2004. who both reached that mark in 2004. Not terribly shocking for the Yankees that year as they won 101 games. The Rays are a bit more surprising, however, as they were a 70-91 team.

The Fish can break the record today as they play the Rangers once again.

    Not surprising rgarding the Yankees and Rays, the AL has been dominant over the past 20+ years over the NL. NL is real baseball but its also really bad baseball – especially fundamentally speaking (besides bunting ability).

      Back to your cave, person who is obviously 90+ years old and still thinks that we’re in the pre-free agent era where there were actually significant differences between the leagues.

    Not a Marlins fan but pulling for them. Nice to see them rebound after that disaster of last year. Not a word from ESPN about how terrible the owner and club is anymore. Apparently their front office knew something no one else did.

      If they knew anything, it was how awful the rest of the division was going to be in the first half. They are clearly a better team than that boatload of big show refugees they fielded last season, but that’s still not saying much.

      I repeat: this is a badly flawed team being run on the cheap whose gaps will widen and swallow them as the season wears on. You’re not going anywhere, for example, when your cleanup hitter has one home run after 64 games and is capitalizing primarily on the guy ahead of him holding the league lead in intentional walks. The pitbull days of late July and August will tell.

    No one wants to give loria credit and he should be disliked but the guy knows how to put people in place to rebuild quickly when they sell off their assets.

      Scrooge McLoria put Larry Beinfest in place, then subverted everything Beinfest tried to do – and blamed Beinfest when his cockamamie impositions didn’t pan out. Beinfest hired the guys who are running the team now and with the exception of this past orfseason pickups, he built the farm system and loaded it up with EYPs in the wake of Scrooge’s demolition orders. The ongoing problem is, of course, that as soon as their rebuilt youth blossoms, they’ll get sold orf as soon as they approach arbitration, too. At Macondo Banana Massacre Field, it will always be Groundhog Day.

    Also I can’t wait for the day when we stop calling it interleague. It’s one league now with all the teams playing racing other throughout the year and it’s been slowly inching along to join the rest of the sports with their conferences. Once the dh is in the nl and it will be eventually they will have completed their one league two conference goal
