Francisco Mejia’s hit streak has not been slowed by promotion or rumored trade. It has survived illness and injury. And now, it’s reaching truly lofty heights.

After sitting out two games with the flu, Mejia singled to center field in the sixth inning against Winston-Salem (White Sox) on Friday night to extend his hitting streak to 49, tying him with Jack Ness for the fifth-longest hitting streak in the history of the minor leagues. It’s the sixth-longest of all professional baseball once you include Joe DiMaggio’s major league record 56-game streak.
