Ken Landreaux from the Chronology
May 31, 1980 - Ken Landreaux goes 0-for-4 in Minnesota's 11-1 loss to the Orioles Scott McGregor ending his hitting streak at 31 consecutive games. It is the longest streak in the AL since Dom DiMaggio's 34-game streak in 1949.
Apr 23, 1980 - Angels P Bruce Kison settles for a one-hitter when Minnesota's Ken Landreaux rips a double with one out in the 9th inning of California's 17-0 romp. It is the 2nd time in a year that Kison has lost a no-hitter with one out in the 9th. For Landreaux the hit marks the beginning of a 31-game hitting streak. The loser today is Terry Felton.
