1991 Topps #232 Jose DeJesus

An 11th win in a row was not to be in 2009. The Cubs roughed up Jamie Moyer, Chad Durbin and Brad Lidge this afternoon, defeating the Phils 8-5. Having seen enough, Charlie Manuel was ejected in the sixth inning.

1991 Flashback: But the Phils were able to win their 11th in a row on August 10, 1991, defeating the Expos 4-2. Jose DeJesus pitched seven strong innings, allowing only one earned run. In the seventh inning, a Lenny Dykstra RBI-double followed by a Wes Chamberlain RBI-single put the Phils ahead for good. The win pulled the Phils to within 12½ games of the first place Pittsburgh Pirates.

I haven't been able to confirm this, but I believe The Phillies Room is the first blog in the history of blogs to feature both Ivan and Jose DeJesus in the same week. (Ivan and Jose are no relation to each other).
