(Martensdale) Martensdale-St. Marys historic baseball winning streak came to an end last night when the 1A powerhouse lost to Class 4A Des Moines East 4-3.
The Blue Devils won 88 straight games which included back to back state championships becoming the 9th and 10th teams in state history to finish a season unblemished and the first to go perfect in consecutive seasons. Their 2nd state title pushed their winning streak to 87 games which stood as a national record until Portsmouth N.H., who plays baseball in the spring, reclaimed the national record at 90 straight wins. The Blue Devils won’t have to wait long before trying to put the loss behind them. The team will look to start a new streak tonight when they take on Panorama.
