Andre Ethier extends his hitting streak to 24 games

3 Comments

Maybe we should wait until 28 — halfway to DiMaggio — before giving daily updates about Andre Ethier’s hitting streak, but I’m in a good mood today so let’s start early: Andre Ethier hit in his 24th straight game a few minutes ago with a single back up the middle in the fourth inning of the Dodgers-Marlins game.  It’s the longest streak for either 2011 (obviously) or 2010 (Josh Hamilton had 23).

But let’s not get too excited: he needs to do it in six more games to even make the top 50 of all time.  Hitting streaks are kind of a pain like that.
