Rays’ Franco extends streak, exits with hamstring tightness

DETROIT (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays rookie Wander Franco extended his on-base streak to 39 games, then exited in the first inning against Detroit because of tightness in his right hamstring. After a 10-4 loss, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash says he’s sure Franco will miss some time, but is hoping the injury isn’t too bad. With one out in the first, Franco lined a single. Nelson Cruz followed with a double, but Franco limped into third and was replaced. The 20-year-old Franco made his major league debut this year and has sparked the team with the best record in the American League. His on-base streak is the second longest in major league history by a player under 21. Frank Robinson set the record with a 43-game string in 1956.
