Chihiro Kaneko (ORI) picked up his 10th consecutive victory last night.  While there is a relief appearance mixed in there, if you just look at starts, that's actually 10 victories in 10 straight starts.

A look back at those 10 starts:

Date Opp IP NP BF H HR SO BB HBP WP BK R ER
08/31 SEI W 6.1 121 27 5 1 9 2 0 0 0 4 4
08/25 SOF W 8.0 97 28 4 1 12 0 0 0 0 2 2
08/17 RAK CG W 9.0 123 31 4 0 7 0 0 0 0 0 0
08/10 SOF W 7.2 111 29 8 1 10 1 0 0 0 4 4
08/03 SEI W 7.0 127 26 5 1 5 0 0 0 0 2 2
07/27 HAM W 8.0 119 32 6 1 11 1 0 1 0 2 2
07/20 RAK W 5.0 104 25 7 0 9 3 0 0 0 5 2
07/14 LOT CG W 9.0 135 34 7 0 8 1 1 1 0 0 0
07/08 SEI CG W 9.0 131 31 3 0 6 1 0 0 0 0 0
07/01 RAK CG W 9.0 104 31 4 0 7 1 0 0 0 0 0
78.0 1172 294 53 5 84 10 1 2 0 19 16

By the way, that works out to a 1.85 ERA, a 0.81 WHIP, and a 9.7 K/9.

Note: The last pitcher in franchise history to win 10 games in a row was Yoshinori Sato with 11 straight in 1985.
