Giants 10th straight playoff elimination win sets MLB record
The San Francisco Giants never say die and after Joe Panik stepped up in the bottom of the 13th inning with a game-winning hit against the Chicago Cubs earlier tonight, the team set a record for the most consecutive elimination game wins in MLB history.
Giants: 10 straight elimination game wins (longest streak in MLB history) (via @eliassports)— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 11, 2016
The streak began in 2012 when the Giants won three in a row at the Cincinnati Reds in the division series, then overcame a 3-1 deficit against the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series. Then the Wild Card Game against the Pirates in 2014; Game 7 of the World Series versus the Royals, followed by this year's Wild Card Game against the Mets.
