They are just three innings away from tying the MLB record set by the Baltimore Orioles in 1983 of 55 straight innings with a lead. The 1963 St. Louis Cardinals also had a streak of 53 innings with a lead.
So, to set the all-time MLB record, the Dbacks would have to score in the first inning of their game Sunday afternoon and hold the lead until the end of the fourth inning.
That would give them a record 56 straight innings with a lead.
The team could still continue their streak of innings without trailing if they were to go scoreless after one inning.
The Diamondbacks have also won nine straight games coming into Sunday. The last time they won nine in a row was August 23-31 of 2011.
The last time the team won at least 10 games in a row was back in 2003 when they won 12 in a row.
Arizona is 5.5 games ahead of Colorado for the first wild card spot, and 7 games ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers who are next closest in the standings.
