MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - High Desert's Jamie McOwen had his hitting streak ended at 45 games, the eighth-longest run in minor league history.

McOwen went 0 for 3 with a walk in the Mavericks' 2-0 loss Friday night at Modesto. Needing a hit to extend the streak, McOwen struck out in his final at-bat in the ninth inning.

Seven previous times during the streak, McOwen had extended it in his last at-bat. The 2007 sixth-round draft pick had a hit in every game in which he played for Seattle's Class A California League affiliate since May 10.

It was the minors' longest streak since Waco's Roman Mejias hit in 55 straight games in 1954. Wichita's Joe Wilhoit set the minor league mark with a 69-game streak in 1919.
