The Cincinnati Reds last night shut out the Houston Astros 10-0 handing the hapless Astros their 100th loss of the season. It was the third straight season that the Astros have lost 100 or more games.
In the process, Houston became the 12th franchise since 1901 to lose 100 or more games in three consecutive seasons. They are still, however, two seasons away from tying the major league record. The Philadelphia Phillies lost 100-plus games in five straight seasons from 1938-42.
