    In my opinion, yes.

    Very impressive accomplishment but it won't mean all that much if they don't win it all.

    Yes. A tie is not a win.

    Agreed. But I'd enjoy it like I am LAD falling apart the past few weeks.

    According to Elias, the Giants won the tied game. Back then, any game that was called due to darkness, and the game was tied, was started over in it's entirety. So the 12th game was called due to darkness and was replayed in full along with win #13 the next day. The Giants won both games keeping the streak alive and went all the way to 26.

    EDIT: I'm reading now that on Sep 8th, the game was called due to rain after 9 innings with the score tied at 1. The game was made up as a double header on Sep 9th where the Giants won both games keeping the streak alive.

    The Giants 1916 season is the oddest season I have ever seen. They had a 26 game win streak, and a 17 game win streak. They also started the season 2-13. They finished the season 86-66. They were 43-66 without those two streaks. So, literally half of their wins that season came on two separate win streaks.

    Groan worthy attempt at humor as per usual.

    We beat them in a three-game series back in June. We gave Andrew Miller back-to-back losses.

    Three game series in June generally don't have a ton of bearing on a playoff series but okay.
