Nolan Schanuel's Historic MLB On-Base Streak Ends After Controversial Scoring Change
  • Nolan Schanuel's 30-game on-base streak, the third-longest in baseball history to start a career, was ended by a retroactive scoring change.

  • Major League Baseball denied the Los Angeles Angels' appeal of the decision that reclassified a play involving Schanuel as an error, not a hit.

  • The scoring change prevented Schanuel from potentially surpassing Truck Hannah's 1918 record of reaching base in 38 consecutive games to begin a career.

  • Angels manager Ron Washington expressed disagreement with MLB's ruling on the play.

  • Despite the streak ending, Schanuel had established himself as the Angels' starting first baseman, showing a consistent ability to get on base since his call-up last season.

  • Schanuel has faced challenges at the start of the current season, managing only six walks and experiencing a batting slump.
