Let's put this into perspective.

Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer extended his franchise-record hitting streak to 27 games Sunday with a two-out single in the eighth off Giants reliever Sandy Rosario.

If Cuddyer goes one more game, extending his streak to 28, he'll be halfway to tying the 56-game streak set in 1941 by Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio. That's an accomplishment some people say might never be broken.

"I'm right there with 'some people,' " Cuddyer said with a hearty laugh. "It's incredible. It's unfathomable."

Still, Cuddyer's streak is impressive. It's the longest in the majors this season and the longest since Boston's David Ortiz hit safely in 27 games (spanning two seasons) from July 2, 2012, to May 7 of this year. The last player with a longer same-season streak than Cuddyer was Atlanta's Dan Uggla, who hit safely in 33 games in 2011.

And remember this: Cuddyer has reached base safely in 46 consecutive games, also a Rockies record.
