All combined, Stroman pieced together a 15-inning scoreless streak that also included seven shutout innings in a September 2019 start for the Mets, and another six scoreless frames on Sunday before Charlie Blackmon delivered a one-out RBI single to pull the Rockies to within one in the seventh.
That 15 inning scoreless-streak is tied for the third longest by a visiting pitcher at Coors Field. Only Tyler Walker (16 2/3 innings pitched) and Jair Jurrjens (15 2/3 innings pitched) had longer ones.
After walking Dom Nuñez in the top of the third inning, Stroman retired 12 straight batters before Trevor Story connected for a seventh-inning double. In all, Stroman allowed three hits, walked one and struck out three in his first eight-inning start since April 19, 2019.
He joins Logan Verrett as the only pitchers in franchise history to allow one or fewer earned runs in a start of at least eight innings at Coors Field.
