Record of consecutive games hitting streak remains Joltin’ Joe’s

With the 8-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies, Jackie Bradley’s 29-game hitting streak ended as the 26-year old center fielder of the Boston Red Sox went 0 for 4.

With this win, the Rockies snapped a three-game losing streak and the Red Sox ended an four-game winning streak.

In the last thirty games Bradley jr. hit a whopping .400 to raise his batting average to an American League second best average of .341. Only his team mate, Aruban born Xander Bogarts is doing better with .347.

Bradley jr. was moved to the leadoff spot for the first time this season and promptly he stopped hitting.

Joe DiMaggio

The pitcher who kept the Red Sox in check was Jon Gray, who came off the worst performance in his young career. Last week he allowed nine earned runs on eight hits in a 13-7 loss of the Rockies vs the Cardinals.
Yesterday Gray, lasted 7.1 innings in which he allowed two runs on five hits, struck out six and walked three. Quite a rebound from a bad performance.

With Bradley jr. going 0 for 4, Joe DiMaggio will remain the possessor of the 56-game hitting streak that he recorded in 1941 and which earned him the MVP title of that year. That title was rather disputed in those days as the Red Sox’ Ted Williams hit .406 for the season and was the last hitter to hit over .400.
