It is almost impossible, when you consider the whims of modern baseball, to go 43 consecutive innings without scoring a single run. The reason is obvious: SOMEONE will hit a home run. Someone. Anyone. This year, big league hitters will bash more home runs than ever before and, as a natural result, teams are on pace to be shut out the fewest times in a decade. It's simple math. You really can't go 43 consecutive innings in 2017 without hitting a home run and, so, you really can't go 43 consecutive innings without scoring a single run.
