Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado wasted no time Wednesday night putting himself alongside teammate Michael Cuddyer at the top of the Rockies' hit-streak chart.

Arenado pulled Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis' 3-1 pitch in the first inning into the left-field corner for a two-run double, which extended his hit streak to 27 games -- tied with Cuddyer's streak last season for longest in club history.

The hit came after a two-out single by Troy Tulowitzki and a double from Carlos Gonzalez, and accounted for the first runs of a 9-2 Rockies victory.

"The whole team is playing well, hitting the ball hard and coming together," Arenado said. "It's nice to see everyone pulling for each other."

Arenado, 23, is hitting .364 (39-for-107) with 11 doubles, four home runs and 19 RBIs during his streak.

The last time someone 23 or younger had a streak this long was 2003, when 23-year-old Albert Pujols had a 30-game streak for the Cardinals.
