Xander Bogaerts Aware Of Current Hitting Streak From Moment He Wakes Up

Xander Bogaerts doesn’t need anyone to tell him about his 24-game hitting streak. He’s already very aware.

“I wake up, I know I have it. I come to the field, I know I have it,” the Boston Red Sox shortstop said on NESN’s “Red Sox First Pitch.” “Probably my first couple at-bats, I’m not really trying to put pressure on myself. But as the game goes on — third, fourth at-bat — you know your time is running out, so just try to focus a little bit more and try to put up a good at-bat and see what happens. I definitely know I have it.”

Bogaerts will try to extend his streak to 25 games Wednesday when the Red Sox face the Baltimore Orioles, and you can hear more of what he had to say in the video above.
