A Record Breaking Start

With nine wins and no losses in nine consecutive starts, Barret Loux has started the season with a perfect record that leads all of professional baseball. Loux is the new RoughRiders record holder for most wins in as many starts. He is also currently tied with former RoughRiders  Justin Miller (2011) and Luis Mendoza (2007) for the most consecutive decisions. Loux said he’s been lucky so far to have so many wins.

“The guys have given us a chance to win with the run support and worked hard,” Loux said. “Sometimes there’s tons of runs and sometimes they drop out but that’s baseball.”

When asked if he feels any pressure pitching with such a good record, Loux laughed and said no. He added he does have goals when he steps on the mound but his main focus is pitching his best. Some ballplayers have superstitions when they have a run of good luck but Loux said it’s not for him.

“I do a little bit of the same thing,” Loux said. “I have a set routine that I stick to but I have no superstitions. No lucky socks.”
