Giants Reliever Yusmeiro Petit Sets MLB Record By Retiring 46 Straight Batters

San Francisco’s spot starter had previously been best known for being one of only 12 players in MLB history to have lost a no-hitter with two out in the ninth. Now he’s wrestled the consecutive-outs record from Mark Buehrle, who in turn had taken it from another SF Giant, Jim Barr (41).

… and then the pitcher doubled.

Petit has appeared in only 113 games for the Giants. The Giants lead the Rockies 2-1 in the fifth.
