What is the longest losing streak in the MLB?

Kansas City is trucking along pretty well at 19 straight losses as of 8/19....Without asking the human baseball encyclopedia Peter Gammons, does anyone happen to know what the longest losing streak happens to be?

Looks like the longest losing streak is 23 by the '61 Phillies. The '88 Orioles have the AL record at 21.

And the Orioles are from the start of the season.
