The Phillies have won each of Vance Worley's last 13 starts, the second-longest such streak in club history. The longest was in 1972, when the club won 15 consecutive starts by Hall of Famer Steve Carlton. Both of those runs are below.

Noteworthy: The last loss in a Worley start was May 29 when the Mets roped him for 12 hits and 8 runs in 3 innings ... The bookend losses surrounding the Carlton run were June 16 at the Astros (a 1-0 loss that was a no-decision for Lefty) and a 2-1, 11-inning loss to the Braves on Aug. 21 (a Carlton complete game) ... The victories during Carlton's streak were the last 13 of his 15-game winning streak and Nos. 6 through 20 on the season. Yes, he won his 20th game on Aug. 17 ... Worley has one complete game in his run; Carlton completed 13 of his 15.

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.
