The Braves had 3 or their regular staters go undefeated in the month of June: Jaret Wright, Mike Hampton, and Russ Ortiz. Name the last team to have accomplished this, and in what month they did it.

Bonus points to anyone who figures out who the three pitchers were. I found two, and know there is a third, cuz I heard this on tv from announcers...but I cant seem to find him. Oh well.
Seeing as the Braves have won 12 division titles in a row, does that mean that soon they are going to have to start making columns as well???

Scratch that...YOU NEED THE PITCHERS NAMES TO GET CREDIT. PLEASE PUT THEM IN YOUR ANSWER...so the question now reads. Name the last team before the braves to have 3 pitchers go undefeated as starters in a month, while also naming the month they did it in, and the starters who did it.

eek...sorry about that...this is totally my fault...they had to go COMPLETELY undefeated...with NO no decisions...winning ALL the games they started in that month...Should've worded the question better...but thats what I really wanted...sorry again...keep trying though.

I still don't know the answer but I did find out this info....

Accordning to ESPN in the month of June:

Ortiz 1-2 with 2 no decisions
Hampton 1-3 with 1 no decision
Wright 2-0 with 4 no decisions

I think you meant to say July in your original question:
Ortiz 5-0 (no decision on 7/22)
Hampton 5-0
Wright 4-0 (no decision on 7/2 and 7/20)

so it looks like the Braves trio didn't win all of there starts either as they had 3 no decisions.

alright...Im going to give you credit for it since my source must be wrong. It appears that the A's trio did go undefeated then, in much the same way that the braves trio did. I'll reveal my second source that told me about this...Im not sure how they can print something like this that isn't true.

http://www.ajc.com/braves/content/sport ... notes.html

And yes, I meant July, not June.

But I'll give you credit. If you want to know who I wanted really as my answer, its in the link, but it was Jim Coates, Art Ditmer, and Bob Turley for the Yankees in June of 1960.
