This day in baseball: King Karl

On July 17, 1936, Giants pitcher Carl Hubbell achieved a 6-0 victory over the Pirates.  This became the first of a 24-game winning streak for Hubbell, who would not lose a game until Memorial Day of 1937.  Hubbell’s consecutive game winning streak record continues to stand today.
