Bay Area baseball team has won 36 straight games, longest streak in the nation


For someone who isn’t big on winning and losing, Mike Curran sure has been doing a lot of winning lately. His Ohlone College (Fremont) baseball team is riding a 36-game win streak — the longest current streak for any college baseball team nationally — into the postseason. They’re ranked No. 1 in California and No. 7 nationally, according to Perfect Game USA. It started Feb. 5 with a 7-2 win over the College of the Desert (Palm Desert) at the David Buttles Memorial Tournament and hasn’t stopped since. There have been scores as low as 3-2 and as high as 28-2, the Renegades’ tally on Saturday against De Anza (Cupertino). But they’ve finished every game ahead, including Thursday’s 9-1 win at Cabrillo College (Aptos) to end the season.
