Across Friday and today, St. Louis held Colorado hitless for 49 consecutive at-bats, the longest streak, according to STATS, since the Dodgers went hitless for 50 at-bats in a row from September 25-27, 1981.
On September 25 at Houston, the Dodgers scored two runs in the eighth inning on their way to a 3-0 victory, but did not get a hit in five at-bats after Steve Garvey’s one-out single in the top of the eighth.
Nolan Ryan no-hit the Dodgers the next day, building the streak up to 32 outs without a hit.
Pitching against his former team on September 27, Don Sutton took a no-hitter into the top of the seventh before Kenny Landreaux singled, to end the streak at 50. Sutton finished with a two-hitter. Los Angeles had four walks in that period.
Colorado made 40 straight outs between a leadoff single in Friday’s game and a walk with one out in the fifth inning of today’s contest. The Rockies’ next hit came with one out in the top of the eighth.
