Reyes streak at 23 and counting

WASHINGTON — The streak continues.

Jose Reyes’ double in the third inning on Saturday night at Washington, extended his hitting streak to 23 games, the longest active in the Majors.

It’s also the fourth best in Marlins’ history. Luis Castillo holds the record of 35 games in 2002. Emilio Bonifacio hit safely in 26 last year, and Kevin Millar had a stretch of 25 games in 2002.

Reyes isn’t the only Miami hitter on a hot streak. Carlos Lee has hit safely in 10 straight games.

Lee extended his streak with an RBI single in the third inning, which scored Reyes.
