Werth passes Raines, nears franchise-record on-base streak

DENVER (AP) Jayson Werth has extended his on-base streak to 45 games with a walk for the Washington Nationals against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday.

Werth has the longest streak ever for the Nationals and passed Tim Raines for the second-longest on the franchise list. Raines reached in 44 straight games for the Montreal Expos spanning the 1985-86 seasons.

Werth is one off Rusty Staub's franchise record set over the 1969-70 seasons.
