BOSTON (AP) — Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox got hits in 11 straight at-bats, then fell one short of the major league record when he grounded into a double play Saturday night.
Pedroia had gone 4 for 4 against the Kansas City Royals before his streak ended in the eighth inning at Fenway Park. His string stretched over three games.
The big league mark of hits in 12 straight official at-bats is shared by Walt Dropo for Detroit in 1952, Pinky Higgins of the Red Sox in 1938 and Johnny Kling of the Cubs in 1902.
