Jackie Bradley Jr.’s 29-game hitting streak came to an end Thursday against the Colorado Rockies.

Bradley finished hitless in four at-bats as the Boston Red Sox fell 8-2 at Fenway Park.

Bradley was close to getting another chance to extend his streak, per MLB.com’s Ian Browne:

At 29 games, Bradley’s run was tied for the fourth longest in Red Sox history, per Red Sox Notes:

According the Boston Globe‘s Pete Abraham, Bradley was also in a new spot in the lineup, which could have factored into his hitless night: 

Bradley is hitting .341 on the season, and he is not the only Red Sox crushing the ball. Xander Bogaerts leads the American League with a .347 average, followed by Bradley, and David Ortiz is fourth with a .337 mark.

Boston leads the American League in runs by a landslide with 274. The Seattle Mariners sit in second with 220. The Red Sox lead the AL in batting average as well, hitting an absurd .298 as a team. It is no surprise then that the team leads the league with a 29-18 record.

Bradley is still on his way to an All-Star season, but his streak was bound to end at some point. Per MLB.com, Andre Ethier (30) and Dan Uggla (33) in 2011 are the last two players to extend such a streak to 30 games or more.

The 26-year-old is only a career .238 hitter, so he could slow down in the coming weeks. However, there is also a chance he has broken through and found his swing for good.
