Rangers' Choo Shin-soo extends on-base streak to 49 games

SEOUL, July 14 (Yonhap) -- The Texas Rangers' designated hitter Choo Shin-soo has extended his on-base streak to 49 games, the longest record among active players in Major League Baseball (MLB).

Choo went 1-for-5 in the Rangers' 5-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore on Friday (local time). He hit a single in the top of third inning off Orioles' starter Alex Cobb to reach base.

Choo now holds the longest single-season on-base streak among active players in MLB, breaking a tie with Joey Votto and Albert Pujols. Votto had a 48-game on-base streak in 2015 with the Cincinnati Reds, while Pujols reached that record in 2001 with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Choo, who also celebrated his 36th birthday on Friday, already set the record for the longest on-base streak by an Asian in MLB, which was previously held by Ichiro Suzuki at 43 games, and surpassed the Rangers' franchise record for a single season that was formerly owned by Julio Franco at 46 games.

The Rangers' longest on-base streak at any point is held by Will Clark, who reached base in 58 straight games over the 1995 and 1996 seasons. The MLB record is held by Ted Williams, who reached base in 84 consecutive games in 1949.

Choo, who recently earned his first MLB All-Star Game selection, struck out to start the game but smashed a single in his next at-bat, which turned out to be his only hit of the night. In the fifth, the South Korean flied out to left field, and his plate appearances in the seventh and ninth ended in strikeouts.

With only one hit, Choo's batting average went down from .290 to .289.
