Lovin' The Useless Trivia

bluejaysWhen Alex Rios hit an RBI single in the first inning tonight against the Yankees, his hitting streak against the Yankees was extended to 22 games.

That's the longest such streak since 1956, surpassing 21 game streaks by Nomar Garciaparra, Paul Molitor and Harold Baines.

It's a useless piece of trivia, but I dig it.

You know, I saw that in the third inning last night and wondered where the hell the guy dug up that random stat.

When he tied the record, I read it at http://www.baseball-reference.com/sotd/archives/626 so I was rooting for the hit last night.
