Even when he's made outs, Jose Reyes more often than not has been hitting the ball hard of late. The two hits that extended his career-best hitting streak to 22 games Friday did not leave the infield.
Reyes began both ends of the doubleheader against the Nationals the same way: With bunt singles. The first established a new career-best run at 21 games, a mark he increased to 22 with the same approach off tough lefty Gio Gonzalez in the night cap.
The National League's longest hitting streak this season now belongs to Reyes. He began the day tied with Pablo Sandoval and Angel Pagan, both of whom hit in 20 straight. The only player that has outdone Reyes is Robinson Cano, who hit safely in 23 in a row from June 24-July 20.
