This past Tuesday night at Fenway Park, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander went six innings, and gave up five runs on 10 hits to take the loss the Red Sox.
With that performance, however, Verlander registered his 53rd consecutive start with at least six innings pitched. He and Hall of Fame great Bob Gibson are now tied for fifth place on the all-time list.
In today's day and age, with pitch counts and relief specialists, starters oftentimes don't consistently pitch into the later innings, making Verlander's current streak even more impressive.
With that in mind, there have been some other streaks by MLB pitchers that are remarkable in nature, and we at Bleacher Report will revisit some of those streaks right now.
