BAR: One Joey Votto streak ended, another continues

Joey Votto’s 17-game hit streak ended on Sunday, but he still has another even more impressive streak going – he’s reached base more than once in 18 straight games, the longest such streak in Reds history.

He’s only three games from tying the longest streak in baseball since 1900, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Ted Williams, Votto’s hitting role model, owns the record, reaching base in 21 consecutive games in 1948. Pete Rose and Barry Bonds both had 20-game streaks. Rose with the Phillies in 1979 and Bonds in 2004.
