— With a third-inning single to center field Saturday night at Fort Wayne, Dayton Dragons outfielder Jose Siri extended his hitting streak to 34 consecutive games and can tie a 40-year-old Midwest League record with a hit today against the TinCaps.
The record of 35 consecutive games with a hit has been held since 1977 by Tony Toups, who played for Waterloo in the Indians system. Siri’s streak is the longest in professional baseball this season.
A hit Friday by Siri broke a MWL tie with West Michigan catcher Robert Fick, a future Detroit Tiger, who hit safely in 32 straight in 1997.
