Rangers' Choo Shin-soo has hitting streak snapped, keeps on-base streak alive

All News 13:36 June 07, 2018

SEOUL, June 7 (Yonhap) -- One streak has ended, but another streak is alive for Texas Rangers' South Korean designated hitter Choo Shin-soo.

Batting leadoff, Choo went 0-for-3 with a walk in an 8-2 win over the Oakland Athletics at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday (local time). Choo's season-high hitting streak ended at 12 games, but the veteran has now reached base safely in 22 consecutive games.

His career high for an on-base streak is 35 games, set over the course of the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

Choo took care of the on-base streak by drawing a walk in his first plate appearance against Daniel Mengden. But Choo struck out swinging in the second and the fourth inning, and flied out to left field in the seventh.

Choo is now batting .263, along with 10 homers and 26 RBIs.
