Pujols extends hitting streak to 29 games

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Albert Pujols extended his hitting streak to 29 games — the longest by a Cardinals’ player in 44 years — with a line drive single to right field in the first inning of Friday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Pujols’ streak is the longest in the majors this season and the longest for a St. Louis player since Ken Boyer’s 29-game run in 1959.

The longest streak in Cardinals history is Rogers Hornsby’s 33-game run in 1922.

Until Pujols’ streak, the majors’ longest hitting streaks this season were 26 games by Kenny Lofton and Nomar Garciaparra.
