Fuentes set the score 0-1 in the fifth minute and fouled second player Jeff McNeil’s throw-in, ending the streak.
Detroit’s Tyler Alexander is a pitcher who has previously scored nine in a row, making his streak on August 2 against Cincinnati.
Seaver set a record against San Diego on April 22, 1970, beating his last 10 beaters in a 19-hit performance.
Colorado took a 3-1 lead over deGrom then in the fifth half when Nunez hit a RBI triathlon, who hit Yonathan Daza on target with a dead fly and Tapia went home. All three runs were not performed because of McNeil’s fault.
DeGrom beat 12 to five innings.
Despite the 78th deGrom 2.06 ERA starting since the 2018 season began, New York is still 36-42 with him on the mound.
