11. New York Yankees (2021)
Notable winning streaks don’t occur often, but when they do occur they’re always exciting. The Yankees enjoyed their longest run of victories in 60 years in 2021. Those were Babe Ruth’s glory days but now their hero was Aaron Judge. After a disappointing end to the 2020 season, there was pressure on the Yankees to perform from the start. In short, they did.
They won 13 straight games but their run ended against Oakland. The Athletics won their box series 3-2 as they brought the Yankees back down to earth (CBS Sports). It’s very difficult to sustain these kinds of runs in baseball. The Yankees couldn’t beat the Indians’ record from a few years before but they tried their best. Every team’s winning streak comes to an end.
