Nationals center fielder Denard Span went 0-for-4 in last night’s win over the Marlins, ending his hitting streak at 29 games.
Span’s streak was the longest in the majors this season, topping Michael Cuddyer‘s 27-game streak from June-July. He fell one game short of tying Ryan Zimmerman for the franchise record, which was set in 2009.
Span, who was acquired from the Twins last winter, hit .371 with nine extra-base hits (two home runs), nine RBI, and 20 runs scored during the streak. The 29-year-old is now batting .281/.329/.380 for the year. His batting average was at .258 at the start of the streak.
