10
 consecutive starts where he has pitched at least 7.0 innings and allowed 2 or fewer runs (6-1, 1.40 ERA, 85 SO, 11 BB)…the streak is the 2nd-longest by an  AL pitcher dating back to 1974 when Gaylord Perry had a 11-start streak for the Indians…he is the first pitcher with 10 straight starts of 7.0 IP, 2 or less runs in a
single season
 since Mike Scott (HOU) in 1986.
