Losing three straight games to the Philadelphia Phillies is pretty bad, but it isn't the worst streak in the Marlins organization right now.
The Marlins' Triple-A team in New Orleans goes into Sunday evening's contest on a 14-game losing streak, a franchise record. The Zephyers haven't won since August 7 and have dropped 22 of their past 24 games.
I pointed out on July 20, along with WPLG's Will Manso and David Lang, how every one of the team's affiliates were in last place. The only bright spot for the Marlins now comes from the Gulf Coast League where their rookie-league team is not in the cellar.
(Update 08/24) The Zepyhrs are now on a 15-game losing streak after Las Vegas defeated them Sunday night 5-4. New Orleans is two games away from tying the Pacific Coast League record for consecutive losses at 17, a record that was set in 1925 by Sacramento, according to The New Orleans Advocate.
