It would be great research for people playing Beat the Streak on mlb.com. It's shocking to see Adam Dunn on this on-base list. I always think of him swinging for the fences--not your typical beat the streak guy. And then I look at his numbers. .288 average with 88 walks. Ahhhh. His walks very much pad his numbers to get onto this on-base list. I'm curious if Dunn would make it onto the "most games this year getting at least one hit."

Then its Jeter (63), Adrian (62), and then 5 players with 60 such games.

The list gets really interesting when you raise the number to 3 times in a game.
Chase Utley 2009 36 Ind. Games
Chone Figgins 2009 34 Ind. Games
Prince Fielder 2009 34 Ind. Games
David Wright 2009 32 Ind. Games
Matt Holliday 2009 30 Ind. Games
Nick Johnson 2009 29 Ind. Games
Shin-Soo Choo 2009 29 Ind. Games
Shane Victorino 2009 28 Ind. Games
Albert Pujols 2009 28 Ind. Games
Bobby Abreu 2009 28 Ind. Games
Nyjer Morgan 2009 27 Ind. Games
Orlando Hudson 2009 27 Ind. Games
Justin Morneau 2009 26 Ind. Games
Adam Dunn 2009 26 Ind. Games
Marco Scutaro 2009 25 Ind. Games
Hanley Ramirez 2009 25 Ind. Games
Dustin Pedroia 2009 25 Ind. Games
Joe Mauer 2009 25 Ind. Games
Derek Jeter 2009 25 Ind. Games
Miguel Cabrera 2009 25 Ind. Games
Jason Bay 2009 25 Ind. Games

How about Choo and Nick Johnson, eh?

Sorry, but I can't give him credit for the third baseman throwing the ball away on a sac bunt.
