Michael Cuddyer’s hitting streak ends at 27 games

Seemed long. Then you realize that he was still one shy of the halfway point to DiMaggio. Those hitting streaks are hard.

Especially when you have to face Clayton Kershaw, who was throwing lightning bolts last night. Cuddyer finished 0-for-4 against the lefty, ending the Rockies’ longest hitting streak in franchise history at 27 games.

I think 30 is the official point when we should start to get a tad excited. Little DiMaggio counters or a “hit streak watch” can start at, I dunno, 40.  But for a guy like Cuddyer, who has never been an especially fantastic contact hitter, a 27-game streak is nothing to sneeze at. It’s a pretty darn nice accomplishment, actually.

    Oh yeah, Ruben Amaro Jr. thought Ty Wiggington & Lance Nix were better free agent options than this guy. Thanks Craig, you troll Phillies fans even without trying!

    Nice run, Cuddy! Wish him luck the rest of the season.

    Don’t feel too bad cuddy, kershaw is a very good pitcher. However, like you said winning the division is more important than your hitting streak.

    It’s a pretty darn nice accomplishment if you are Miggy Cabrera, too. When you consider a different pitcher every night, rain, shine, minor injuries, etc etc etc; it’s amazing what it takes to put even a short streak together.
