Dozier's streak evokes A-Rod, Hornsby

Brian Dozier extended his streak of consecutive games with an extra-base hit to 11 on Thursday. It's the longest streak by any MLB player since Alex Rodriguez had an 11-game streak in 2006-07, and it's the longest in the majors by a middle infielder since Hall of Fame 2B Rogers Hornsby produced at least one extra-base hit in 12 straight in 1928, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

I love watching Brian Dozier play. Now up to 10 straight games with an extra-base hit. Last AL player to do that: Not Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera. Not even A-Rod. It's Johnny Damon in 2009.
