DENVER (AP) -- Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer has lined a single to center in the second inning against the New York Mets, extending his hitting streak to a franchise-record 24 games.
Cuddyer entered Thursday's game tied with Dante Bichette before breaking the team mark with a hit off starter Jeremy Hefner on a hot afternoon.
Cuddyer's hitting streak is the longest in the majors this season.
He has reached base in 43 straight games, also a team record. The previous mark was 41 set by Andres Galarraga and matched by Todd Helton. Both of those, though, were over the course of two seasons.
Cuddyer has raised his season average to .346 during the streak. He is a .271 career hitter.
