Not much has slowed down Jose Reyes during his career-long hitting streak. But a sore right hand is giving the Marlins' shortstop some trouble. Batting left-handed, Reyes went deep with two outs in the first inning on Wednesday night, extending his streak to 26 games. The 26-game hit streak is the longest by a reigning batting champion since Joe DiMaggio's MLB-record 56-game streak in 1941. Reyes jammed his hand -- between his thumb and index finger -- while facing Gio Gonzalez on Friday night in the second game of a doubleheader in Washington.
