Arizona Diamondbacks lose 22nd straight road game

Arizona Diamondbacks lost their 22nd consecutive road game with a 13-7 loss to the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park on Wednesday.

“This is obviously nothing that we ever expected, nothing that we’re proud of, and we can’t reverse anything that’s happened over the past 40-plus days,” said D-Backs manager Torey Lovullo. “We’ve got to find a way to win a baseball game tomorrow.”

The D-Backs’ 22nd consecutive loss ties a Major League Baseball record for the longest road losing streak since 1900. Two other teams have also done it — the New York Mets, who did it in 1963, and the Philadelphia Athletics, who did it in 1943.

In addition, the D-Backs currently hold the worst record in MLB. They have lost 13 games in a row, with 27 losses in the last 29 games and 36 losses in the last 41. On May 2, they were 15-3. Now they are 20-49.

The D-Backs allowed the most home runs in MLB at 4. They have been second-to-last in OPS since May 3, second-to-last in runs per game, last in reliever WHIP, and last in starters’ ERA.

“It’s really hard because we’ve been working hard every day,” said third baseman Asdrúbal Cabrera. “I feel bad for me and my teammates because I know we’re working hard.”

Update to this story. The Diamondbacks lost to the Giants 10-3 on Thursday, their 23rd conseuctive road loss. This sets a new MLB record for consecutive road losses.
