Some of Hubbell's other phenomenal achievements include pitching 18 innings to beat a 1933 St. Louis Cardinals team 1-0 without allowing a walk, set a major league record of 24 straight victories in 1936-37, pitched 46 1/2 consecutive scoreless innings in 1933, one of the longest streaks in baseball history, and in 1933 and 1936 became the only peacetime pitcher ever to win the MVP award two times.
