Garrett Wittels is three games away...
The FIU infielder extended his hitting streak to 55 games with a line-drive double to right-center in the sixth inning of the Golden Panthers' NCAA tournament game against Texas A&M.
Wittels was hitless in his first two at-bats, flying out to right in the first and grounding to third in the third. On his third AB, Wittels hit a 3-0 pitch from Aggies starter Barret Loux into the gap.
He's now three games short of the Division I record of 58 by Oklahoma State's
Robin Ventura in 1987.
