Aaron Sanchez's season from hell marches on.

The 27-year-old right-hander became the first Toronto Blue Jays pitcher to lose 10 straight starts after Wednesday night's 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox.

Prior to Wednesday, Sanchez was tied with Juan Berenguer and Jeff Byrd as one of three Blue Jays pitchers to lose nine consecutive games.

If not for a pair of no-decision outings in late May, Sanchez may have set the mark even sooner. He's now lost 13 consecutive decisions since earning his last win on April 27.

Sanchez allowed four earned runs on eight hits across five innings against the Red Sox on Wednesday. He walked one batter and struck out four. He's now 3-14 with a 6.26 ERA over 21 starts this season.

In his previous start, Sanchez became the first pitcher since Sidney Ponson in 2004 to lose nine consecutive starts in the same season. He's closing in on the all-time mark.

Hugh Mulcahy (1940), Roy Moore (1920), and Rube Marquard (1914) each lost 12 straight starts in one season, while Mike Boddicker lost 13 straight from 1987 to 1988, and Chuck Stobbs lost 14 from 1956 to 1957.

Lum Harris and Bobo Newsom lost 13 and 12 straight appearances, respectively, but they split time between the rotation and bullpen.
