             === Minor league player hits in 43 straight games ===
 Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Brandon Watson extended his hitting streak to 43
 games   on  Sunday,  breaking  a  record  that  stood  for  95  years  in  the
 International League.
 Watson  was only  1-for-5 in a 9-8,  11-inning Clippers loss to Ottawa but his
 leadoff single off J.D. Durbin in the sixth made history.
 Watson is batting .360 with 10 RBI during his streak which began May 1.
 Jack  Lelivelt set the  IL record for the Rochester Hustlers when he hit in 42
 straight during the 1912 season.
