SportsRadio 610 -- Alex Bregman suffered a strained hamstring in the Astros’ 13-6 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday.

Bregman doubled to left field to lead off the fourth inning, reaching base safely for the 40th consecutive game, which is the longest active on-base streak in Major League Baseball dating back to Sept. 11, 2019.

But the Astros’ star third baseman started to favor his right leg on his way to first base,e and he limped into second.

Abraham Toro entered the game to run for Bregman.

Afterward, manager Dusty Baker said this is the same hamstring Bregman’s pulled before, and they will see how he is feeling Thursday morning.

Bregman expressed his disappointment after the game, saying he was “starting to feel pretty damn good.”

“It’s just disappointing because I put so much work into this offseason and this quarantine period on specifically my hamstring,” Bregman said. “So it’s frustrating.”

Bregman has been one of the Astros’ most reliable hitters this season. In addition to reaching base in all 24 games this season, Bregman has four home runs and 14 RBI.
