The longest losing streak for a defending World Series champion is 11, the 1998 Florida Marlins (now the Miami Marlins) and the 1986 Kansas City Royals. The owners of this unfortunate streak are the 1961 Phillies, who lost 23 straight games in a season in which they finished 47-107. But what about teams in Contra Costa County?The longest losing streak for a baseball team in Contra Costa County is held by the Comets, who lost 16 consecutive games during the 2019 season. The Comets (2-16 overall and 2-7 in the Bay Valley Conference) started the game without an eligible goalie, forcing the team to play against someone with no goalkeeping experience. This streak ended one day after Baltimore ended its 20-game streak away from Camden Yards with a 6-5 win in 10 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays on June 25. The 1889 Louisville Colonels hold the record for the longest losing streak in the official MLI.
History of the B with 26 games, although the Brooklyn Atlantics of 1875 lost 31 consecutive games in the National Association, a figure not considered official by MLB. With a 162-game schedule, each extreme run or fall seems like the best or worst in baseball history. But when it comes to Contra Costa County, it's clear that the Comets hold the record for longest losing streak.
