Denard Span Extends Hitting Streak
Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On September 18, 2013 @ 8:53 AM In MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments
That 28-game streak marks the longest in the majors this season — surpassing the 27-game streak by Rockies’ slugger Michael Cuddyer — and is the longest since Dan Uggla’s 33-gamer in 2011.
Also of significance is that Span is exactly halfway to Joe DiMaggio’s famed record of 56. Obviously Span can’t get there this season as the Nationals only have 11 games left. But if he gathers at least one hit in every game the rest of the way he can take a 38-game hitting streak into next season.
