Ryan Cook’s scoreless streak ended at 23 innings on May 28. Aroldis Chapman lost his at 29 innings on Thursday. Now Scott Downs’ streak has ended after 20 2/3 innings after he gave up his first run in earning a save against the Rockies on Sunday.

Downs was the only reliever left in the league to have spent the entire year on a roster and not given up a run.

Seattle’s Lucas Luetge, a Rule 5 pick, still has a 0.00 ERA after 14 innings, but he did allow an unearned run on April 13.

Boston’s Junichi Tazawa and Pittsburgh’s Doug Slaten have thrown the most innings in the majors without allowing a run this season: 6 1/3. Tazawa is currently back in Triple-A.
