Historic no-shutout streak ends for Cubs with 9-0 loss originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The Cubs dropped Friday afternoon’s contest at Wrigley Field against the Cincinnati Reds 9-0, taking their first shutout loss of 2023 in a game where the North Siders failed to record a hit in the first seven innings.

Though Friday’s loss pushes the Cubs to a 22-28 record, the shutout marked the end of a remarkable streak the Cubs put together to start the season.

The Cubs managed to avoid being shut out for the first 49 games of the 2023 season, marking the longest the franchise had gone without a shutout loss to start a season since 1898, when the then-Chicago Orphans avoided a shutout for the first 91 games of the season.

The Orphans went on to finish fourth in the National League in 1898 with a record of 85-65, 17.5 games behind the pennant winning Boston Beaneaters.

Before Friday, the Cubs’ most recent shutout loss was on Sept. 24, 2022, when the North Siders fell 6-0 to the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

On Saturday night, the Cubs will look to bounce back against their division rivals as Jameson Taillon hopes to record his first win as a Cub.
