Stat Of The Day: Three For Prince

Prince Fielder had hits in each of his first three at bats today, making it his second straight day with three base knocks. He also drew a walk in both games, so he's been on base eight times since Monday. It's the second time this season he's had three hits in back to back games, and the fourth time in his career. He's only extended the streak to three games on one occasion:

Start End Games Hits
7/16/2006 7/18/2006 3 9
4/19/2011 Today 2 6
4/9/2011 4/10/2011 2 6
9/16/2008 9/17/2008 2 6

Three hits in three consecutive games is a feat that's been done 22 times in franchise history, most recently by Casey McGehee from September 22-24 of 2010. Only two batters have ever done it in four straight games:

Player Start End Games Hits
Jim Gantner 7/25/1983 7/29/1983 4 14
Tyler Houston 6/10/2002 6/17/2002 4 12

Houston must have raised his value with the streak: The Brewers traded him to the Dodgers a month later.
