EN FUEGO:

Wittels does it again, streak at 53 games (TIM REYNOLDS, 05/29/10, Daily Caller)

Garrett Wittels used a headfirst slide to keep his hitting streak alive. It helped extend Florida International’s season as well.

Wittels pushed his hitting streak to 53 games, five away from Robin Ventura’s NCAA Division I record, with an infield single Saturday in the eighth inning of FIU’s game against Florida Atlantic in the Sun Belt Conference tournament at Murfreesboro, Tenn. [...]

Wittels’ success is something that FIU didn’t even see coming this season. When the Golden Panthers opened their schedule, Wittels — who struggled mightily at the plate last year as a freshman — wasn’t expected to be an everyday player.

Now, he’s gotten a hit in every game in which he’s played in 2010. And thanks in part to that, FIU has likely played itself into consideration for an at-large berth into the NCAA field.
