5/4 Hitting machine

Ryan Theriot hit an infield single in the second inning Tuesday to extend his hitting streak to 13 games, matching his career high. Theriot also had a 13-game streak July 3-20, 2008. The shortstop also had an eight-game hitting stretch from April 9-17 and is the first Cubs player with two hitting streaks of at least eight games in the first month since Mark DeRosa did so in 2008. Theriot came into Tuesday’s game leading the NL with 39 hits and third with a .355 batting average.
