Despite the win it was a pretty poor night for a lot of Brewers tonight, and Rickie Weeks was no exception. Despite getting six plate appearances in the game Weeks failed to get a hit, ending his hitting streak at ten games.
This streak was the fourth time Weeks has put together hits in at least ten consecutive games. Surprisingly enough, he's never gotten a hit in the eleventh game. Here's a look at the four streaks:
Two things surprised me from these numbers:
- First, three of the four streaks happened in April. The 2010 streak came in the Brewers' first ten games.
- Second, though, the Brewers are just 18-22 in these games, despite the fact that their leadoff hitter had at least one hit in all of them.
