Nolan Arenado's hit streak matched a Rockies record with a 2-run double in the first inning, tying Michael Cuddyer's mark set last season.
Longest Hit Streaks In Club History
|2014 Nolan Arenado||27|
|2013 Michael Cuddyer||27|
|1995 Dante Bichette||23|
|1997 Vinny Castilla||22|
Arenado needed little time to extend his string Wednesday night. He hit a two-run double in the first inning against the Rangers to equal teammate Michael Cuddyer's 27-game streak from last season.
Arenado's streak is the longest for anyone 23 years or younger since Albert Pujols had a 30-gamer in 2003 when he was 23.
The streak for Arenado began April 9, a week before his 23rd birthday. According to Elias, his streak is the longest that began when a player was 22 or younger since Benito Santiago's 34-game hitting streak in 1987, which is still a major league rookie record.
