Nolan Arenado Extends Hitting Streak to 27 Games
(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- Nolan Arenado hit a two-run double in the first inning to extend his hitting streak to 27 games, as the Colorado Rockies routed the Texas Rangers 9-2 on Wednesday night in Arlington.
Arenado had three hits on the night as he matched teammate Michael Cuddyer's franchise record streak from last season. Arenado is hitting .364 (39 of 107) in the streak that began nearly a month ago.
"It's pretty cool, pretty cool," Arenado said. "I'm trying to stay within myself, I'm not trying to get too big, or trying to hit the home run. I'm just trying to hit the ball hard. I'm going to keep on saying that until the year is over."
Carlos Gonzalez added a solo home run for the Rockies, who have outscored Texas 29-5 in three games this week. The team's 22 victories are tied for the most in the majors.
Jorge De La Rosa struck out four and walked three to earn his fourth win of the year. Colby Lewis (2-2), took the loss for Texas.
