DENVER — Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer insists he's really not thinking all that much about his team-record 27-game hitting streak.

Of the longest hitting streak in the majors this season, Cuddyer says he's simply taking it, "one at-bat at a time, one pitch at a time."

Cuddyer and the Rockies have a day off Monday before hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-game series.

The 34-year-old Cuddyer also has reached base safely in a franchise-best 46 consecutive games. The last time he failed to get on base through a hit, walk or being plunked by a pitch was April 21, back when there was still a chill in the air.

Since then, there's really been no chilling his bat.
