Bartlett's RBI puts him in record book
PHOENIX -- San Diego shortstop Jason Bartlett has made his way into the franchise's record book.

Bartlett's RBI in the first inning Tuesday against the D-backs gave him at least one RBI in nine consecutive games to tie the club record established by Sixto Lezcano in 1982 and tied by Steve Finley in 1996.

The last time a Major League player had an RBI in nine or more consecutive games came last year when Jorge Cantu plated a run in 14 consecutive contests in parts of two seasons with the Marlins. Cantu started the 2010 season with an RBI in 10 consecutive games for the Marlins. 

  Carmelo Martinez and Tony Gwynn both had eight-game RBI streaks in 1984.
