Everybody's Got A Record: Greg Minton Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**

Greg Minton holds the live-ball era record of pitching 269 1/3 innings straight without giving up a home run.  Minton was a middle-reliever and closer for the Giants so during that streak nearly three entire seasons passed.  Greg was also the pitcher that gave up Pete Rose's last hit in 1986.
