Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Hitting Streak is Reaching Mostly Uncharted Waters Since 2000

At this time last year, not many people expected Jackie Bradley Jr. to hit consistently enough to maintain a .250 batting average, let alone put together one of baseball’s longest hitting streaks in quite some time. But that’s why they play the game.

He’s used this month-long stretch to show manager John Farrell he shouldn’t be hitting in the ninth spot of the lineup anymore, and he’s sent that message by posting a .412/.487/.784 triple slash with eight home runs, 29 RBI and 18 runs scored during his last 102 at-bats.
