When St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday drew a free pass in the 11th inning Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, it kept the 35-year-old’s season-opening on-base streak intact at 23 games.
Holliday’s streak has reached the top 15 for the club all-time. It is the longest for a Cardinal since Albert Pujols was on base during his first 28 games in 2009. Pujols also holds the team record of 42 consecutive contests, which he set at the start of the prior season.
