Zimmerman's hit streak at 30 games
Zimmerman matched George Brett's 30-game streak in 1980 for the longest by a third baseman since Pete Rose's 44-game streak in 1978, although Rose played two games in left field during his famed streak.
Zimmerman singled off Matt Cain on Tuesday night, the 14th time he's had a hit in his first at-bat during the streak. He had a first-inning single off Randy Johnson on Monday before going 4 for 5 with two homers.
