ARLINGTON, Texas — Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has broken the team record with a 28-game hitting streak.

Arenado had a two-out single in the third inning Thursday night against the Texas Rangers.

The streak is one game longer than teammate Michael Cuddyer's 27-gamer last season.

Arenado's streak is the longest for anyone 23 or younger since Albert Pujols had a 30-game run in 2003 when he was 23.

The streak for Arenado began April 9, a week before his 23rd birthday.
