Of note: Twins hitting streaks

Of hitting streaks and Twins

Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado entered the weekend with a chance to reach some rarefied air in the Mile High City: Collect a hit in 30 consecutive games, something that nine different franchises have never experienced. He didn’t get there, going hitless on Friday, but in reaching 28 straight games Arenado erased Colorado’s franchise record of 27, set last season by former Twin Michael ­Cuddyer.

But three other ex-Twins still own the longest hitting streaks for other franchises, including Paul Molitor’s 39 games in 1987, which is the Brewers’ record, and outside of Pete Rose’s 44-gamer, the longest streak since Joe DiMaggio set the all-time record at 56 games. Other ex-Twins holding franchise records: Luis Castillo’s 35-game streak in 2002 is the best in Marlins history, and Jason Bartlett’s 2009 streak of 19 in a row is the best ever by a Ray. (Another former Twin, Denard Span, had a hit in 29 straight games a year ago, missing by one Ryan Zimmerman’s Nationals team record.)

The best in Minnesota history? That belongs to Ken Landreaux, who hit in 31 consecutive games in 1980.
