Streak ends at 30 games
SAN FRANCISCO -- Although Ryan Zimmerman's 30-game hitting streak ended right before he could carry it home to Washington, he thinks the monthlong experience will benefit him for years to come.
The Nationals' rising star also got a less tangible prize: A whole new appreciation for the greatness of Joe DiMaggio.
"It makes you realize how much better 56 is than 30," Zimmerman said, referring to the San Francisco native's record hitting streak in 1941. "That's a long time. ... To get a hit every single game, there's got to be a little bit of luck involved."
Zimmerman got no luck in the Nationals' 6-3 victory over the Giants on Wednesday, going 0-for-3 with two walks. He never got the ball out of the infield, grounding into a fielder's choice on his final chance in the ninth.
