In the 7th inning, @TGO7E faced Adam Ottavino, the first No. 0 vs No. 0 battle in @MLB  history.

A similar situation could happen again later this season, also involving the Yankees, of course dependent on pitching rotations and injuries, etc. When the Yankees visit the Dodgers on August 23-24-25, if Hyun-Jin Ryu pitches to Aaron Judge, it will be the first 99 vs. 99 ever.

I feel like this one's pretty common knowledge at this point, but Khris Davis has .247 each of the past four seasons.

 

The Cincinnati Reds also have a 9 game winning streak in the World Series.

 

Sammy Sosa his 50+ home runs four times, and three of them were 60+ home run seasons. Hank Aaron never hit 50 home runs in a season, and his career high, 47, came when he was 37.

This is similar to how the Marlins have never lost a playoff series.

 

I realized this 5 or 6 years ago and it's a fun thing to say when the team is on a losing streak. Like they lose again and you go to anybody and nobody in particular, "you know the Reds are on a 9 game winning streak in the World Series?".

This happened when they lost their last World Series game.
