On Friday night, Cole Tucker and Kevin Kramer extended their on base streaks in two very different ways. Kramer got his streak to 29 games on an intentional walk, which only came after a wild pitch opened up first base. That would be the only time he reached base yesterday. He has actually reached base in every game he has played this year. Tucker reached on a fourth inning double, just minutes before Kramer drew his walk. That made it 21 games in a row for Tucker, but he wasn't done. He homered two innings later, then tripled in the seventh and homered again in the eighth inning. He had a chance for a cycle, but ended up with a much better result than a single.
