It's always surprised me that Orel's streak of 59 scoreless innings doesn't get more attention.
Really, it's just astounding. Imagine a guy throwing back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-back complete game shutouts (and then five more shutout innings in his next start). Granted, it's even more astounding being a Reds fan.
It even has a Hollywood-like background to it. Orel entered his last start of the 1988 season needing 10 more scoreless innings to break the streak. He pitched nine scoreless innings, but the score was tied 0-0. And partially at the urging of former Dodger Hall of Famer Don Drysdale (who held the record with 58 scoreless innings), Orel threw one more inning and he broke the record.
