MURFREESBORO, Tenn. It's now a 51-game hitting streak for Florida International's Garrett Wittels.

The sophomore infielder singled in the first inning off South Alabama's Garrett Harris on Friday, moving within seven games of matching Robin Ventura for the NCAA Division I record.

Wittels and the Golden Panthers needed a win Friday to remain alive in the Sun Belt Conference tournament and extend their hopes of getting an NCAA berth.
