This Day in Baseball History
On July 24, 1978, Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds extends his hitting streak to 37 games with two hits against the New York Mets, tying Tommy Holmes’ modern day major league record. Rose collects two singles in a 5-3 win, causing Mets pitcher Pat Zachry to kick at the dugout steps. Zachry breaks his foot and will miss the rest of the season.
