Rollins extends hit streak to 29, ties MLB season high
CINCINNATI -- Philadelphia's Jimmy Rollins singled in the third inning against Cincinnati on Saturday night to extend his hitting streak to 29 games, tying the major league season high set by Boston's Johnny Damon from June 10-July 17.
With one out in the third inning and the Phillies trailing 1-0, Rollins singled sharply past third baseman Edwin Encarnacion
Rollins' streak is the second-longest in Phillies history, two games shorter than Ed Delahanty's in 1899.
