One Last Thing
Thirty years ago on August 9th, Paul Molitor tied the Brewers hit streak record when he hit in his 24th straight game en route to a 39-game hitting streak. Now the Twins manager, Molitor’s hit streak remains the longest in the last 30 seasons, but it raises the question of the longest hit streak in Twins history.
Thirteen times a player has had a hit streak of 20+ games:
Ken Landreaux in 1980 with 31
Brian Harper in 1990 with 25
Brian Dozier in 2016 and Lenny Green in 1961 with 24
Torii Hunter in 2007, Cristian Guzman in 2002, Marty Cordova in 1996, Kirby Puckett in 1993, and Kent Hrbek in 1982 with 23
Shane Mack in 1992 with 22
Ben Revere in 2012 with 21
Chuck Knoblauch in 1991 and Ted Uhlaender in 1969 with 20
