Only George Brett’s 30-game hitting streak in 1980 stands in front of Whit in Royals lore. However he has a long way to go to even approach the all-time record, one of the most revered in all of baseball, a 56-game hitting streak by the Yankee Clipper, Joe DiMaggio in 1941. Could Whit have a shot at even coming close to the record? The conventional wisdom is that for anyone to approach Joltin’ Joe’s record, it would have to be (1) someone who makes a lot of contact; (2) someone fast enough to beat out an infield single now and then; and (3) a left-handed hitter who is a step closer to first base to beat out that infield single.Merrifield makes a fair amount of contact for his day with a strikeout rate of just 16.3%, but historically he would be considered a free-swinger compared to guys like Brett (7.8%) or DiMaggio (an insane 4.8%). He is fast enough to lead the Majors in steals, although not a burner like, say Rickey Henderson or Willie Wilson. And alas, Merrifield is a right-handed hitter.Still, those conventional wisdoms aren’t all that convincing. Tony Gwynn fits all those criteria to a tee and is considered one of the greatest pure hitters of all-time, and yet the longest hitting streak of his entire career was just 25 games. Other speedy, left-handed, high-contact hitters like Ichiro Suzuki and Rod Carew never had a hitting streak more than 30 games. On the other side, Joe DiMaggio wasn’t a right-handed hitter who wasn’t particularly fast. It seems that a long hitting streak requires a pretty good hitter and a lot of luck. DiMaggio’s streak nearly ended at 35 when he was hitless through six innings against the St. Louis Browns. Manager Luke Sewell ordered his pitcher to walk DiMaggio in the seventh, but Bob Moncrief refused, and ended up giving up a single to DiMaggio. If Whit is good enough and lucky enough to begin to challenge Joe’s historic record, would he even supplant the streak? Joe’s hitting streak took place all in the course of one season - from May 15 to July 17 of 1941. But Merrifield’s streak began last season.

, but reached safely on a hit in each of the last 20 games of the season. Then he took six months off, and resumed his streak on March 28 of this year against the White Sox, collecting hits in each of his first eight games this year, so far.Officially, baseball recognizes two kinds of hitting streaks - single-season streaks, such as DiMaggio’s, and multiple-season streaks, such as Whit’s. Wee Willie Keeler owns the longest hitting streak over multiple seasons, when he reached safely in 44 consecutive games in 1896 and 1897. More recently, Jimmy Rollins made a run with a 38-game hitting streak, but that came over 2005-2006. There have been 13 hitting streaks of 30 games or more than took place over more than one season. Longest hitting streaks, MLB historySingle-seasonYearRecordMultiple-seasonYearRecordSingle-seasonYearRecordMultiple-seasonYearRecordIn the minds of most people, however, there is no distinction. Most lists lump all hitting streaks into one category. Whit is considered to have the second-greatest hitting streak in club history, and could pass George Brett in a few games, even though George’s streak took place entirely within the 1980 season. It would likely only be if Whit comes close to threatening DiMaggio’s record that the distinction would be made. If that were to happen (a pretty big “if” considering how amazing that record is and how it has withstood the test of time) I think most everyone would consider DiMaggio’s the more impressive record, since it took place all in one season. Still, that shouldn’t diminish what Whit has done. Getting on base via a base hit is harder than it has been in about a half century - the league-wide batting average was just .248 last year, the lowest it had been since 1969.

, Whit could always reach safely via a hit in 56 consecutive games this year. BOSTON — Back on June 10, after allowing 13 hits and five earned runs in a start against the Texas Rangers, Dallas Keuchel was 3-8 with a 4.45 ERA in his final season before potential free agency.The left-hander is 8-2 with a 2.62 ERA since as he tries to pitch the Houston Astros to a sweep of their three-game series with the Boston Red Sox in Sunday night’s series finale at Fenway Park.Rick Porcello, a 16-game winner who has had his second-half struggles, goes for the Red Sox, who have lost their first home series in the last 11 thanks to losses Friday and Saturday.Article continues below ...The Astros, maintaining their 3 1/2-game lead over the winning Oakland A’s in the American League West, rallied for a 6-3 victory Friday night and got homers from Alex Bregman and Martin Maldonado in Saturday’s 5-3 win — their seventh straight and 14th in their last 17 games.Jake Marisnick made an outstanding running catch of an Andrew Benintendi drive with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth inning. He also had a sacrifice fly.Bregman’s homer was his career-high 30th of the season, something he called “a nice little accomplishment.” He joins Morgan Ensberg as the only Astros third basemen to reach 30 — and his torrid streak has vaulted him into the MVP conversation.Boston’s Mookie Betts ripped his 40th double of the year Saturday, making him the first player in MLB history with four straight seasons of 40 doubles and 20 stolen bases.The Red Sox scored in the ninth inning and had first and third with one out against Roberto Osuna, but J.D. Martinez grounded into a double play to end it.“Any time he comes up, regardless of the score, we feel that he’s gonna barrel something,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora, the bench coach for last year’s Houston champions, said. “Just a good pitch by Osuna, and he got him to roll over and that was it.“I don’t know what the numbers are with men in scoring position (3-for-13), but it felt like we had traffic in both games and we haven’t been able to cash in. They made some pitches too — you’ve got to give them credit.”Keuchel has won his last two starts to climb above .500, yielding three earned runs in 12 innings.He is 0-1 with a whopping 9.88 ERA in three games (two starts) in the regular season against Boston. But he went 5 2/3 innings دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, allowing one run, in winning Game 2 of last season’s American League Division Series.Porcello is 16-7 with a 4.20 ERA. He has won his last two starts, but gave up five runs in 10 innings in those games and is 2-3 with a 5.73 ERA in his last six outings.He beat the Astros on June 3 in Houston, going 6 1/3 innings and allowing two earned runs — and is 2-1 lifetime against them.The current Red Sox are hitting a combined .219 lifetime with four home runs against Keuchel. Ian Kinsler is 10-for-33, but Mitch Moreland (likely to sit) is 1-for-13, Steve Pearce 2-for-19 with a home run, Martinez 1-for-9 and Xander Bogaerts 1-for-7 with a homer.The Astros on the roster have hit a combined .268 with four home runs against Porcello. Marwin Gonzalez, who returned as a pinch runner in the ninth inning Saturday, is 3-for-7 and Josh Reddick 3-for-10, and Maldonado is 2-for-9 with a home run.Lance McCullers Jr., out since Aug. 4 with a right forearm strain, threw his second bullpen of the week Saturday — 30 pitches, all fastballs.“Honestly I couldn’t have hoped for a better pen today,” McCullers said. “It’s a good step forward. I still have a couple more boxes to check before we start getting into games, but this was a big step for me.”Cora indicated before the game that Brandon Phillips will get his second start with the Red Sox in Sunday night’s game. He hit a two-run, ninth-inning homer to win Wednesday’s game in Atlanta.
