Ex-Twin Michael Cuddyer extends hitting streak to 27 games


Remember Michael Cuddyer? He's the former Twins outfielder who is putting up MVP-like numbers for the Colorado Rockies.

On Sunday, Cuddyer extended his hitting streak to a Rockies record 27 games -- the longest in Major League Baseball this season.

Entering Monday's games, Cuddyer was second in the National League with a .344 batting average. His 14 home runs rank ninth in the NL, and his slugging percentage of .590 ranks second. Even more impressive is his OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of .983 ranks first in the NL.

He's also reached base a Rockies franchise-record 46 consecutive games.
