Luke Scott snaps 0-for-41 hitless streak with home run
Luke Scott finally got a hit last night.
After striking out in his first two at-bats against the Indians, Scott connected for a two-run home run off Justin Masterson in the top of the fifth inning. The homer broke an 0-for-41 hitless streak which dated back to June 2.
Scott finished five at-bats shy of the major-league record for a position player, which was set when Eugenio Velez went hitless in 46 at-bats between the Giants and Dodgers from 2010 to 2011.
