JT’S HITTING STREAK HITS 16: LONGEST BY PHILS CATCHER SINCE 1900!

By Hank Allison

Blake Snell, who is 0-3 in six career starts against the Phillies, gave up J.T. Realmuto‘s one-out double in the first and then Kyle Schwarber’s home run.

Realmuto extended his career-best hitting streak to 16 games — matching the longest by a Phillies player primarily playing catcher since 1900.

Stan Lopata did it from July 29 to Aug. 14, 1956, and Jimmie Wilson from April 19 to May 17, 1934.
