 PHOENIX (AP) -Arizona third baseman Mark Reynolds tied the major league record for consecutive strikeouts by a non-pitcher Tuesday when he struck out swinging in the fourth inning of the Diamondbacks' game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
The mark had been set five times previously, most recently by Kansas City's Bo Jackson from September 16-19, 1988.
Reynolds struck out in his final at-bat Saturday in Atlanta, twice more on Sunday, four times against two Brewers pitchers Monday and twice against Milwaukee starter Dave Bush Tuesday night.
The rookie came into the game batting .273 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs for the Diamondbacks. After his first two at-bats, he had struck out 94 times in 258 at-bats.
