Tejada hitting streak stopped

Astros shortstop Miguel Tejada had five attempts to extend his National League-best hitting streak Thursday night against the Colorado Rockies but went hitless in five at-bats to bring an end to the streak at 17 games.

Tejada flied out to center in the first inning, struck out in the third, lined out to right field in the sixth and bounced out to the pitcher in the eighth. Tejada got one final chance with two outs in the ninth and hit into a game-ending fielder’s choice.

Tejada, who entered Thursday’s game leading the NL with a .358 batting average, hit .444 (32-for-72) during the hitting streak, which was his longest since going for 19 games in 2004. The last Astros player with a streak longer than 17 games was Willy Taveras, who had a club-record 30-game streak in 2006.

I have tried many times to post on this type of posting site, but I can’t figure it out! If this post makes it, I would like to say that Miggy should be resigned next year and I hope the club gets it done and allows him to play third base! Its time!
