Trea Turner hasn’t been with the Dodgers long, but it seems like at least once a game, he’s causing havoc on the base paths with his superb speed. He might have a strike out, a groundout, but you know he’s going to get on base because, that’s just what happens.
Dodgers fans’ eyes do not deceive them. Entering yesterday’s matinee against the Detroit Tigers, Turner had reached base safely in 39 straight games. He was unable to stretch it to 40.
For the first time in a long time, Turner did not get on base. The Dodgers shortstop went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the Dodgers 6-3 win. In fact, Turner was the only starter besides his fellow Turner to not record a hit in the game.
It’s not the only streak that’s ended on an April Sunday for the 2021 batting champion. On April 17th, Trea failed to record a hit and snapped his 27-game regular season hitting streak.
On the season, Trea is slashing .263/.315/.375. It’s not exactly the start the All-Star shortstop, nor the Dodgers, was looking for. Since hitting .316 in LA’s first three series of the season, the speedster has gone 9-for-42 (.214).
During that stretch, Turner has just one stolen base and only four extra-base hits.
With that said, the Dodgers are just 21 games into the year. The season is young and Turner’s past history suggests that another hitting or on-base streak could be in store in the coming week.
