Sure, you’ve probably heard all about Nolan Arenado and his 2014 league leading 28 game hitting streak, but do you know which guy is 13 games behind that total?
Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s Nick Markakis, who’s 15-game streak is the second longest in Major League Baseball.
Markakis enters Friday night having hit safely in 18 of his last 19 games. During his last 15-games, Markakis is slashing .328/.406/.459 with a pair of homers and 7 RBI. He’s also taken eight walks during that span.
I just totally jinxed him, didn’t I?
