MILWAUKEE -- Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro singled to right with one out in the fourth inning against the Brewers on Saturday to extend his hitting streak to 12 games, the longest active streak in the National League.

Castro now has eight hitting streaks of 10 or more games since the start of the 2011 season, tied with the Yankees' Robinson Cano for the most during that stretch.

Since he made his big league debut on May 7, 2010, Castro has totaled 550 hits, the most in the NL in that span. Milwaukee's Ryan Braun was second, entering Saturday's game with 537 hits.
