#Cubs Coghlan’s iron man streak over
Even though Chris Coghlan was not in the starting lineup Sunday, Maddon planned on getting him an at-bat. Coghlan entered Sunday’s game having played in 150 straight, the longest current streak in the Major Leagues. But Jake Arrieta threw a complete game in a 3-1 win over the White Sox, and Coghlan did not get a single at-bat, ending his streak. Next longest is the Royals’ Kenrys Morales, who played in his 123rd consecutive game on Sunday.
On Saturday, Maddon kept Coghlan’s streak alive when the outfielder got the last at-bat of the game.
“National League, baby,” Maddon said. “There’s always a way [to keep it going].”
