Hitting Streak Record Broken!

Texas Wildcats DH/1B Bingo Jepsen strung together hits in 27 straight games this season, setting a record for Billy Beane that has been broken every season. The streak started on 12/12 AM with a 3-hit day against Cleveland and ended against Cheyenne when he went 0-2 with 2 BB on 12/21 PM2. This 27-game hitting streak was part of a larger streak that saw him reach base safely in 46 consecutive games that was broken when he made an appearance in the 12/29 PM2 game but did not make a plate appearance...if you take into account games where he made a plate appearance, he reached base safely in 49 straight games.

During his record-setting 27-game hitting streak, Bingo hit .416 with a .496 OBP. He collected 9 2Bs, and 5 HRs, knocked in 29 while scoring 14 runs. He only struck out 9 times during this streak.
