Clarification on hit streak
More on the Marlins historical hit streak.
It was brought to my attention that there should be some clarification to the hit streak chart showing the all-time streaks of 10 or more hits. The record, since 1900, is 18, shared by the Indians (1925) and St. Louis Browns (1922).
The Marlins ran their string to 14 straight games with an 11-hit performance on Tuesday night at Houston. That’s the longest streak since the 1937 Browns hit in 15 straight.
If you date back before 1900, you’ll find some marks higher than 18 straight games.
The 1894 Phillies had 10-plus hits in 31 consecutive games, from Aug. 11-Sept. 11, 1894.
