This Day in Skeeters History: May 13

Michael Nix began a remarkable streak on this day back in 2014. The Skeeters and Blue Crabs had a close battle out in Southern Maryland. The Blue Crabs struck first in the bottom of the second but Delwyn Young put the Skeeters out in front in the top of the third with a two-run homer. That would be all the scoring for this one, though. Michael Nix allowed just two hits over five innings and the Skeeters bullpen tossed four scoreless frames behind him, culminating with a save from former Major Leaguer Gary Majewski. This win not only kicked off what would be a series sweep of the Blue Crabs but a historical streak for Nix. He picked up a winning decision in the victory, which would be the first of seven straight winning decisions over his next seven starts with the Skeeters. However, that streak was stretched across two seasons as his 2014 campaign with the Skeeters was cut short due to his contract being purchased by the San Diego Padres. Nix had five straight winning decisions in 2014, which was the second-highest single-season pitcher winning streak in Skeeters history. Between the 2014-15 seasons, his seven straight winning decisions matches the longest pitcher winning streak in Skeeters history.
