A few MLB teams are making history, but not in the way that they had hoped. The Arizona Diamondbacks have set a record for futility away from home, while the Baltimore Orioles are not far behind.

Arizona has been defeated in 23 straight road games, giving the Diamondbacks the longest such losing streak since 1900. After suffering a four-game sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants, the Diamondbacks fell to 30 games below .500 overall for the worst record in all of MLB.

The Diamondbacks have lost 14 straight games total. Following an 18-22 start, Arizona has put together an embarrassing 2-28 record. Before the official start of summer, the Diamondbacks are 24.5 games out of first place in the NL West.

A 5.37 ERA gives Arizona MLB’s worst pitching staff. Over the last 30 days, the Diamondbacks have only scored 100 runs with a league-low 18 home runs.

Madison Bumgarner didn’t give up a single hit in Arizona's last road win. John Means threw a no-hitter the last time Baltimore won away from home, and the Orioles have subsequently lost 19 straight road games.

Four losses away from matching Arizona’s new record, Baltimore only has two more total wins than the Diamondbacks. The Orioles are 20 games out of first place in the AL East and 11.5 games behind the fourth-place Toronto Blue Jays.

Baltimore is on a seven-game losing streak overall. The Diamondbacks are the only team with a worse ERA than the Orioles. Baltimore is on pace to lose well over 100 games for the third straight 162-game season.

Neither Arizona nor Baltimore owns the worst road record in MLB. That distinction belongs to the Colorado Rockies, who are 5-27 away from home.

The Rockies are nine games ahead of the Diamondbacks in the standings because of their 24-14 home record. Colorado is on a four-game winning streak, defeating the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers at Coors Field. 

Colorado has a league-worst .568 OPS on the road, putting them far behind the 29th-ranked Pittsburgh Pirates and their .626 road OPS. At hitter-friendly Coors Field, Colorado has a .812 OPS, which ranks second among all home teams.

Virtually out of contention already, the Rockies are expected to trade shortstop Trevor Story this summer. The Diamondbacks and Orioles are likely to become sellers before the July 31 trade deadline, as well.

MLB played its entire regular season without fans last season. Now, most stadiums are finally returning to full capacity.
