Philadelphia Phillies' Jimmy Rollins strikes out against Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey in the first inning of a baseball game, April 16, 2013, in Cincinnati.

2005-06 with the Philadelphia Phillies

Lifetime batting average: .270

Streak occurred in: 6th and 7th seasons of his still-active, 14-year major league career.

Streak snapped: April 6 when Rollins went 0-for-4 in a loss to the Cardinals. In his final at-bat in the seventh inning, he flied out to center field.

Background: Rollins ended the 2005 season with a 36-game hitting streak and had to wait six months before trying to continue the streak as the 2006 season began. He went hitless in the third game. In 2007, Rollins was named the National League MVP when he became only the fourth player to ever have 20 doubles, 20 triples, 20 home runs, and 20 stolen bases in the same season.
