- It’s still quite early in the 2023 Major League Baseball season, but already the Tampa Bay Rays are well on their way to a sixth-straight winning season and fifth-straight playoff berth.
- That’s because at this writing the Rays have barged to a 12-0 start. It’s fair to point out that the streak thus far has come against what’s likely lackluster competition — i.e., the Tigers, Nationals, A’s, and Red Sox — but 12 straight wins to begin a season is deeply impressive in any context.
- It was Tampa Bay’s 12th victory in a row, the most to start a season since the Milwaukee Brewers went 13-0 to start the 1987 season. They can equal the Brewers on Thursday afternoon, when they aim for a four-game sweep of Boston at Tropicana Field.
