The Phillies' ninth consecutive victory against the Padres Saturday sent us directly to the head-to-head results section of baseball-reference to find the most consecutive regular season wins the Phils have against one opponent.

A win Sunday would mark the teams' 11th such streak of 10 or more victories and the second in which the Padres were the victims:

Wins    Franchise  First Win Final Win 
17 *Astros April 13, 1962 Sept. 3, 1962
14 Cubs Sept. 20, 1980    Sept. 27, 1981    
12 Dodgers May 8, 1905 Sept. 16, 1905
11 Cubs May 3, 1953 June 25, 1953
11 Padres May 23, 2004 July 4, 2006
10 Giants May 30, 1902 Aug. 29, 1902
10 Cardinals July 12, 1913 Aug. 26, 1913
10 Pirates Aug. 15, 1954 April 23, 1955
10 Mets June 29, 1980 Sept. 25, 1980
10 *Nationals   May 28, 1991 Aug. 12, 1991

*Astros were Colt .45s in 1962; Nationals were Montreal Expos in 1991.

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
