ARLINGTON -- Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is streaking. He's reached base in 22 consecutive games.
"I've just been trying to do anything I can to help us win," Moustakas said. "We've been playing really good baseball up to this point."
In Tuesday night's 7-4 victory over the Rangers, Moustakas hit a home run, was hit by a pitch and walked in four trips to the plate.
In the 22-game streak, Moustakas has a .346 (27-for-78) average with two walks, two hit by pitches, 11 runs, six doubles, four home runs and an on-base percentage of .420. During those 22 games, the team's record is 9-13.
"I'm just trying to be consistent. That's what this game is about -- just going out there every day and putting consistent at-bats together and try to have consistent approaches," he said.
The Majors' longest current streak for reaching base in consecutive games is Lance Berkman's 33 games for the Cardinals.
