JoJo Reyes gets off the schnide

So he tied a record instead of breaking it.

Toronto Blue Jays lefthand pitcher JoJo Reyes avoided making history Monday night by throwing a complete game win against the Cleveland Indians, Toronto won 11-1.

Reyes had lost his previous 28 Major League starts. All 28 of them. Which tied him with former Oakland pitcher Matt Keough who lost 28 straight in 1978-79 and Cliff Curtis who did the same thing in 1910-11.

Not only did Reyes get his first win, he threw a complete game. We might add, that in Reyes's previous start, he got a no-decision when the Toronto bullpen blew the 2-0 lead that he gave them.

Mr. Reyes. We congratulate you.
