Brandon Watson's single in the Columbus Clippers' 9-8 loss to Ottawa may not
have seemed like much during Sunday's minor league game, but it was actually a
historic stroke.Watson's base-knock extended his hitting streak to 43 games,
breaking a 95-year-old International League record. Jack Lelivelt set the league
record for the Rochester Hustlers in 1912.
Looking over his career, there is no reason to suspect that Watson is going to have anything better than this hitting streak happen to him, but man, how much worse could he be than Austin Kearns or Robert Fick?
