The last team to open a game with 8 consecutive hits was the 2000 New York Yankees. From AP-
In the midst of a disappointing season, the Chicago Cubs started a game like no team has in almost two decades.
Aramis Ramirez, Geovany Soto and Kosuke Fukudome had two-run hits in a record-tying first inning and the Cubs handed the hapless Pittsburgh Pirates their 11th loss in 12 games, 9-4 on Tuesday night.
The Cubs tied the major league record with eight hits to start the game against the Pirates on Tuesday. They’ve done it before.
Chicago tied a major league record with eight consecutive hits to start the game. The most recent team to do that was the New York Yankees, on Sept. 25, 1990 against the Baltimore Orioles.
With yesterday’s win, the Cubs improved their record to 70-67. They are out of the playoff picture which means it will be at least 65 years between World Series appearances for the franchise.
