Congratulations to Jo-Jo Reyes.
Not that we here at Eye on Baseball are Blue Jays fans or Reyes fans, it's just that you never want to see someone break a record like most consecutive starts without a win, one he now shares -- but doesn't own alone -- with Oakland's Matt Keough (1978-79) and Boston's Cliff Curtis (1910-11) at 28.
Reyes not only broke his streak, but he did it in style, throwing his first career complete game and allowing just one run as the Blue Jays routed the Indians 11-1 at Rogers Centre.
"Even before I came out, we believed," Reyes said. "It was just a fun game."
Reyes gave up eight hits and walked four, while striking out four. He lowered his ERA to 4.15, but more importantly raised his record to 1-4. His last victory came in a Braves uniform on June 13, 2008. In his 28 starts between then and tonight, he was 0-13 with a 6.59 ERA. Twice this season, he was the victim of blown saves.
There was little drama for the Jays, who took a 2-0 lead in the third and after the Indians answer with a run in the top of the fourth on Shelly Duncan's homer, Toronto exploded for seven runs in the fourth.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
