Arenado’s hitting streak breaks Rockies record

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Although the Colorado Rockies got hammered by the Texas Rangers 0-5 on Thursday night, third baseman Nolan Arenado broke his team’s hitting streak record by reaching 28 games. With a two-out single in the third inning, Arenado managed one of only 5 hits that made it past Matt Harrison and four relievers. Now, baseball fans are wondering if he’ll beat the legendary Joe DiMaggio’s major league record of 56 set back in 1941. “My dad was joking around with me, saying, ‘You’ve got to get 57 – let’s go, let’s go.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, right,'” explained Arenado, downplaying his achievement. “My cousin was like, ‘Dude, you’re halfway!’ I’m like, ‘Halfway?’ I feel like this has been forever. This is unbelievable.”
