Best start to a season for a pitcher? Here's a decent candidate: 1981 Steve McCatty from a single-season prog (No Whining Progressive, owner is mountainjack):
Game 1: 4-hit SHO
Game 2: 2-hit SHO
Game 3: 4-hit SHO
Game 4: 3-hit SHO
Game 5: 5-hit SHO
In Game 6 McCatty was finally tagged for a run in the 2nd inning, which ended his shutout streak at 46 innings. He won the game, giving up 2 runs in 5 innings.
In Game 7 he rebounded/reverted back to form and threw his 6th shutout of the season.
Season totals: 7 starts, 7 wins, 6 SHO, an ERA of 0.31.
Believe It or Don't!
