Cuddyer extends hitting streak to 22 games

BOSTON -- Michael Cuddyer extended his Major League-best hitting streak to 22 games as the Rockies played the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Tuesday night.

Cuddyer took a full hack that barely made contact with a pitch from Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster in the fourth inning. The ball slowly rolled down the third-base line. Even Jose Iglesias, considered one of the better defensive players in the game, couldn't get to this one.

Cuddyer's swinging bunt tied him with Vinny Castilla for the second-longest hitting streak in Rockies history. The longest was 23 games, executed by current Rockies hitting coach Dante Bichette in 1995.

Cuddyer has also reached base safely in 41 straight games, longest in the Majors this season and the longest in Rockies history for a single season.
