This Day in Baseball: Keefe’s Streak Ends

By Precious Sanders @pdsanders99

On August 14, 1888, New York Giants pitcher Tim Keefe lost to Gus Krock and the White Stockings, 4-2, at the Polo Grounds.  This defeat marked the end of a nineteen-game winning streak for Keefe.  1888 proved to be the Hall of Fame pitcher’s best year, as he posted a 35-12 record and a 1.74 ERA with 335 strikeouts, earning him the Triple Crown that season.
