Zack became only the 9th pitcher in the AL/DH era to win 9 consecutive starts, giving up 3 earned runs or less in each start.
The record is held by Johann Santana with 12. The old Royal record was 7, which had been done 4 times. (Saberhagen twice,Rich Gale, and Jose Lima.)
I thought it would be interesting to look at those 9 games from a hitter's perspective.

Of course, there is a longer streak of good starts-hopefully we will still be talking about that well into the future
