Span extends hit streak to 21 games

Last night at Citi Field, Denard Span extended his hit streak to 21 games as the Nationals beat the New York Mets 6-3. By extending his hit streak to 21 games Span became only the 11th player in Washington D.C. baseball history to have a hit streak of 21 games or more.

The Nats center fielder still has a way to go to reach Washington Senators’ great Heinie Manush who in 1933 hit in 33 consecutive games. Below is the list of Washington ball players that had a hitting streak of 20 or more games.
