Stat Of The Night: Hart Stopped (Sort Of)

Corey Hart is on a tear lately.
Corey Hart is on a tear lately.

The Brewers had a pretty impressive night offensively tonight, but lost in all of the commotion was this: Corey Hart's six inning home run was hit only hit tonight, snapping a streak of five straight games with at least two.

Hart was still a few games shy of the Brewer franchise record (Fernando Vina in 1998 and Paul Molitor in 1992 each had eight game streaks), but he is one of just 9 players in the Miller Park era to put together a streak of five or more:

Player Season Streak
Brady Clark 2005 6 games
Keith Ginter 2004 6 games
Corey Hart 2011 5 games
Rickie Weeks 2010 5 games
Ryan Braun (3 times) 2008, 2009 and 2010 5 games
J.J. Hardy (twice) 2008, 2008 5 games
Tony Graffanino 2006 5 games
Lyle Overbay 2005 5 games
Scott Podsednik 2003 5 games

Hart still has a seven game hitting streak going, which is tied for his second longest of the season.
