WATCH: Jackie Bradley Jr. extends hitting streak to 29 games
Not only is Bradley more than halfway to DiMaggio's 56, but he's also closing in on the franchise record
Another day, another knock for Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. On Wednesday night, he pushed his hitting streak to 29 games thanks to a first-pitch line drive to left field in the fourth inning. Here's the video evidence:
Bradley Jr. is now more than halfway to Joe DiMaggio's all-time record -- 56, obviously, set some 75 years ago. Additionally, and more pressingly, Bradley Jr. is closing in on the far more attainable Red Sox franchise record:
|Tris Speaker ||1912||30|
|Jackie Bradley Jr. ||2016||29|
If Bradley Jr. wants to match the second-longest Red Sox hitting streak ever, he'll need a hit on Thursday. The Rockies are set to start right-hander Jon Gray in that game. Bradley Jr. has never faced Gray -- at this point, though, it's not as if that seems to matter one way or the other.
