The New York Yankees got a hit in the eighth inning of a loss against the Houston Astros on Friday and didn’t record another hit until Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run in the seventh inning Sunday. The Yankees’ streak of 16 consecutive innings without a hit before the homer was the longest for any team in over 40 years.

According to Sarah Langs of MLB.com, the Yankees became the first team to go 16 innings without a hit since the Los Angeles Dodgers were held hitless by the Astros for 16 consecutive innings in 1981. No team has been held without a hit for 17 straight innings in more than six decades.
