Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado extended his hitting streak to 24 consecutive games with a fourth-inning double in Sunday afternoon’s series finale at home against the Mets. Arenado slashed a 1-2 change-up from Dillon Gee to left field with one out in the fourth inning.
The hitting streak is currently the longest active streak in baseball, and it is the second-longest in Rockies history. Michael Cuddyer set the Rockies’ record last season with a 27-game streak, but it was ended by none other than Clayton Kershaw.
Arenado has been enjoying a great start to the 2014 season. Entering Sunday’s action, he had a .313/.326/.492 slash line, and hit a go-ahead grand slam in Saturday night’s game against the Mets.
