Craig Counsell, pinch-hitting for Greinke, pops out to second to extend his hitless streak to 45 at-bats.
Counsell appears to be one short of the major league record of 46 consecutive hitless at-bats for a position player, held by Bill Bergen. Queries on baseball-reference.com, which run back to 1919, show no longer streak.
Counsell’s last hits came on June 8th, when he went 3-3 against the Cardinals. He has 2 runs scored in his streak, as well as a game-winning RBI on a sacrifice fly. He has only struck out 5 times during the streak, but also walked only once.
