Shortstop Emilio Bonifacio, who had a 26-game hitting streak snapped at the end of last month, handled the roller, but his throw wasn’t nearly in time to retire Uggla.
The single raised Uggla’s average to .221. He was at .173 when the streak began.
STATS Inc. pointed out earlier today that the lowest streak-ending batting average for any player with a hitting streak of at least 30 games (since 1918 anyway) was Willy Taveras at .284 in 2006. Uggla would almost certainly have to overtake Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game streak and keep going well into September if his average is going to climb that high.
