History, Comments, Contributions
The 1943 Philadelphia Athletics set a major league record with 22 consecutive losses in road games. The number has never been matched in the American League, but two National League teams have done as badly - the 1963 New York Mets who tied the mark, and the 2021 Arizona Diamondbacks who broke the record.
