Man! I told you guys the other day that I had a feeling his hit streak was going to end in the next couple days. ;)

Was Pete robbed of any hits that day or did he just have a bad day at the plate?

He walked and scored his first time up, then he lined out to pitcher Larry McWilliams in the second, grounded out to SS in the fifth, lined out into a 5-3 DP in the seventh, and then struck out to end the game.

Here's in baseballlibray.com's bit about the end of the streak.

The Braves trounce the Reds 16-4 and stop Pete Rose's record hitting streak at 44 games. Larry McWilliams and Gene Garber are the Atlanta pitchers. Rose goes 0-for-4. Rose's streak is the 2nd longest in ML history. He goes 70-for-182 during the skein‚ an average of .385. Rose grumbles about using a relief ace with an 11-run lead‚ "You would have thought it was the seventh game of the World Series‚" after Garber uses his best stuff to strike him out to end the game.

Rose was treating it like the 7th game of the World Series so he shouldn't have been so upset.

Looking back on retrosheet in the 7th inning it says he lined out to 3rd into a DP. I remembered him lining out to the pitcher who caught it about ankle high. Maybe I'm remembering wrong? He did walk in the first. I remember being very disappointed when this ended. I really wanted to see him break Joe D's record. This was the most compelling day to day thing I have ever witnessed in baseball. It was truly remarkable.

Ah I missed the 2nd inning AB for Rose. That was the one I was remembering that Rose was robbed on. Rose hit a shot back to McWilliams. McWilliams was left handed and just kind of laid his glove hand down to the right out of instinct and the ball stuck. If McWilliams had been a RH pitcher he never would have caught it and Rose's streak would have kept going for one more game.

BTW he struck out on a really bad pitch about three feet outside in the 9th. He couldn't have hit that pitch with a broom pole. I think the pressure finally got to Rose that last AB. The crowd in Atlanta was in a frenzy and you could tell Garber really wanted to get him out.

Thanks guys. So Pete lined out twice, if one of those fall it would have reach 45. The next night he went 4-for-5 which would have put it at 46. However, the next game he went 0-for-4 and then a few games later he went through a 0-for-10 stretch over a span of three games. Still, what an amazing streak. That's what makes DiMaggio's record so unbelievable. Pete had a 44-game hitting streak and yet he was still 12 games away. That is a streak I don't think will ever be broken in this day and age of LH/RH specialists.

Wow! Stan the Man batting sixth and someone named George Altman batting third.

Altman was an All-Star...the previous two years with the Cubs. But, once he got to the Cardinals, he became quite average.


Ah I missed the 2nd inning AB for Rose. That was the one I was remembering that Rose was robbed on. Rose hit a shot back to McWilliams. McWilliams was left handed and just kind of laid his glove hand down to the right out of instinct and the ball stuck. If McWilliams had been a RH pitcher he never would have caught it and Rose's streak would have kept going for one more game.

I remember Pete commenting later on how irked he was that Garber was jumping up and down as if he had just won the World Series.
