Dayton Dragons outfielder Jose Siri doubled in the 5th inning against the Lansing Lugnuts on Friday, extending his hitting streak to 33 games.

That puts Siri in sole possession of second place on the all-time list of hitting streaks in the Midwest League, as he passes Robert Fick of the 1997 West Michigan Whitecaps. He also is two games shy of tying the MWL record of 35 games, set by Tony Toups of the 1977 Waterloo Indians.

If Siri gets a hit in each of his next two games, he will get the chance to break the 40-year-old record Monday vs. the Fort Wayne TinCaps in a night game at Parkview Field.
