Braves Won 13th Straight

After winning their first 12 games of the season, the Atlanta Braves went into the bottom of the ninth inning trailing 3-2. With one out, the Braves barely escaped what appeared to be a sure double play. With two runners on, outfielder Claudell Washington hit a single to score two runs and win 4-3. This set yet another major league baseball record of thirteen consecutive wins to open the season.
