He now has a hit in each of those contests.
He’s tied the longest hitting streak of any Angel since 2009.
David Fletcher is the first LA Angels hitter to tie Kendrys Morales’ 2009 20-game hitting streak.
David Fletcher’s hit was for an extra base, and started a nice rally for the LA Angels.
Shohei Ohtani doubled right after Fletcher made his own trip to second base, getting the Angels on the board early. Max Stassi drove Ohtani in via a two-run shot out of the park.
Fletcher didn’t stop there. He hit another two-bagger in his next appearance. Peep his numbers during this incredible hitting streak.
Fletcher doesn’t hit for power, but his consistency as a guy who can get on base and hit for average on a regular basis cements him as one of the top second basemen in the American League.
Fletcher wasted no time in extending that hitting streak, as he did it on the very first offensive pitch of the game for the Halos. He’s really beginning to make a name for himself, as he’s been a huge part in keeping the Angels above water in this first half or so of the season.
Fletcher provides as a defensive player with his ability to play all three infield positions left of first base.
Being one of the most consistent hitters on the team has also been huge for the Angels, and is a great option as both that nine-hole hitter who can set the table for the top of the lineup, or someone who can lead the pack and be effective in the leadoff spot.
