 MIAMI (AP) -Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore pinch-hit in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Florida Marlins, extending his consecutive-games played streak to 259.
Sizemore wasn't in the starting lineup, jeopardizing the third-longest current streak of consecutive appearances in the major leagues.
``I prefaced the conversation with, 'This is not open to discussion,''' Indians manager Eric Wedge said before Cleveland's 3-0 loss. ``It's not just about today. It's about the next 100 days.''
Sizemore flied out to center field to lead off the final inning. His streak is the longest by a Cleveland player since Toby Harrah appeared in 473 straight games from 1979 through 1983.
Baltimore's Miguel Tejada is the current active leader with 1,144 consecutive games played, followed by Juan Pierre (336) of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Texas first baseman Mark Teixeira's streak of 507 straight games ended Saturday when he was placed on the disabled list.
Sizemore is batting .287 with 11 home runs and 32 RBIs this season.
