“Who knows how we come up with any of those - it just happens,” Medlen said. “It’s one of those random things you do when you’re going crazy, doing the same things every day.”
Note: When the Braves 14-game winning streak ended with a 1-0 loss to the Marlins Saturday, it was longest winning streak in major-league history that ended with a 1-0 loss, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The previous record of 12 straight wins before a 1-0 loss was also held by the Braves’ franchise. The Boston Red Caps suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Chicago White Stockings on Sept. 8, 1877, in the National League’s second season. In fact, only one other team in the last 29 years has had a double-digit winning streak end in this manner. That was earlier this season, when the same Braves lost 1-0 to the Royals after having won their previous 10 games.
