Paul Molitor’s hitting streak ends at 39 games, standing in the on-deck circle as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 1-0 on a walk-off hit by Rick Manning in the tenth at County Stadium in Milwaukee. The streak is the seventh longest streak in major league history and the fifth longest in the modern era. No player has matched the streak since.
