Colorado Rockies right fielder Michael Cuddyer holds the longest hitting streak in the majors since Atlanta’s Dan Uggla hit in 33 straight two years ago.
Even more, the Great Bridge grad has reached base safely in a franchise-best 46 consecutive contests. The last time he failed to get on base through a hit, walk or being plunked by a pitch was April 21, according to Yahoo Sports.
Since then, there’s really been no chilling his bat. Ask Cuddyer the reason for his recent scorching success at the plate, though, and he will just shrug.
”It’s one day at a time, one at-bat at a time, one pitch at a time,” said the 34-year-old Cuddyer, who will try to extend his streak on Tuesday when the Rockies host the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-game series.
