BALTIMORE (AP) - Xander Bogaerts has extended his hitting streak to 25 games with a sixth-inning single for the Boston Red Sox.

Bogaerts was hitless in three at-bats Wednesday night against the Baltimore Orioles before lining a single to center field off reliever Brad Brach.

The 25-game hitting streak is a career high for the shortstop and the second-longest in the majors this season behind the 29-game run of teammate Jackie Bradley Jr. that ended last Thursday against Colorado.

Bogaerts has hit safely in 37 of his last 39 games.
