Comments on: Pitchers With 100+ PA And No Strikeouts As Batter http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/15068 This and that about baseball stats.

Now, there was a renaissance {sp?} man!

Livan Hernandez has not struck out in 26 straight games, and counting. He last whiffed on Apr 17th against Marco Estrada of the Brewers.

The last time a player had a 60 game streak without striking out was Greg Gross in 1979-80. All other streaks of 60 games or more occurred in 1958 or earlier: 9 in the 1920s; 5 in the 1930s; 5 in the 1940s; and 3 in the 1950s. Here are those 60-game streaks, showing games and AB.
Joe Sewell 1929-05-19 1929-09-19 115 436
Nellie Fox 1958-05-17 1958-08-22 98 396

In '68, he had 7 HRs and 17 RBI in just 88 ABs, with a 118 OPS+. That culminated a 5-year run that totaled 29 HRs & 79 RBI in 444 ABs, with a 99 OPS+.

Willie Keeler of the Brooklyn Superbas went 507 at-bats from his 3rd at-bat on May 6, 1899 through his last at-bat on May 13, 1900.

He struck out in the 3rd inning of the May 6, 1899 game (called) against Kid Nichols
and his streak ended versus St. Louis's Jack Powell in his 1st at-bat in the 1st inning of his May 14th, 1900 game.

Of course, when you're hitting behind Ray Oyler and his OPS+ of 20, what chance do you have?

I'm curious as to the breakdown of decent hitters versus inept batsmen in said list.
