Adrian Gonzalez Sets Multiple Walks Streak Record06/11/2009 2:45 PM ET
Adrian Gonzalez' streak of eight consecutive games with two or more walks was snapped last night at Dodger Stadium...according to the Elias Sports Bureau, he is the first player in the "live ball era" (since 1920) to tally multiple walks in eight straight games.
Additionally, with a current streak of 10 straight games with a walk, Gonzalez is the first Padre to accomplish that feat since Rickey Henderson walked in 11 straight games from 5/31-6/12/1996...the franchise record for walks in consecutive games is held by Carmelo Martinez (9/17-9/25/1985) and Jack Clark (9/6-9/19/1990) with 12.
