Bradley, Jr. Setting Sights On Nomar And Tris Speaker

With a hit tonight, Jackie Bradley, Jr. will catch two Red Sox legends for the second-longest hitting streak in team history. Both Nomar Garciaparra and Tris Speaker hold 30-game streaks for The Carmine Hose—Nomah in 1997 and Speaker in 1912 (the year Fenway Park was opened). If JBJ connects tonight, he will be just four hits shy of catching the all-time Sox leader Dominic DiMaggio (34). You may have heard of Dom's brother Joe—who holds the major-league record of hitting safely in 56 straight games. Hey, one DiMaggio at a time!
