Indians prospect Francisco Mejia’s hit streak | MLB.com

Indians catching prospect Francisco Mejia got the drama out of the way early on Friday, stretching his historic hitting streak to 47 consecutive games with a double in his first at-bat in Class A Advanced Lynchburg’s 13-6 loss to Salem. The streak is the longest in Minor League Baseball in 62 years.
...
Mejia’s streak is now the seventh-longest in Minor League history, passing Johnny Bates, who hit in 46 straight for Nashville in 1925. It’s the longest streak in the Minors since Roman Mejias hit in 55 straight for Waco in 1954.
...
The MiLB hit streak record is 69, set by Joe Wilhoit in 1919. Joe DiMaggio, whose big league record hit streak of 56 games is being celebrated for its 75th anniversary this season, had a 61-game Minor League hit streak in 1933, second-longest of all-time.
