Cubs Trivia:

The Cubs longest winning streak is how many games? What year did it occur?

The Cubs have the record, no? I think it's 21 in a row, and it's one of the early 30's teams.

I recall a 12 gamer in 2001 highlighted by back to back 1 hitters by Wood and Leiber. I think Leiber threw about 79 pitches.

I believe the King is correct with 21. I also believe the year was 1935 when our friend Gabby Hartnett hit .344. That is the year they were in Strat-o-Matic. If I wasn't playing baseball as a kid, I was playing Strat-o-Matic.

King Jeff gets credit for 21, and Spriggs cleans up with 1935.
