Tampa Bay Opens Season With 12 Straight Wins, Nearing Record

It’s still quite early in the 2023 Major League Baseball season, but already the Tampa Bay Rays are well on their way to a sixth-straight winning season and fifth-straight playoff berth.
That’s because at this writing the Rays have barged to a 12-0 start. It’s fair to point out that the streak thus far has come against what’s likely lackluster competition — i.e., the Tigers, Nationals, A’s, and Red Sox — but 12 straight wins to begin a season is deeply impressive in any context.
It was Tampa Bay’s 12th victory in a row, the most to start a season since the Milwaukee Brewers went 13-0 to start the 1987 season. They can equal the Brewers on Thursday afternoon, when they aim for a four-game sweep of Boston at Tropicana Field.
