"I have a hard time getting hits in two straight games," outfielder Mark Trumbo said with a smile. "It's an incredible feat. It's a testament to how good his approach is."
Goldschmidt's streak dated back to last season, and it was the second longest in franchise history behind Luis Gonzalez's 30-game streak in 1999.
While hitting in 26 straight games might be impressive, it still was 30 shy of Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio's 56-game streak from 1941.
DiMaggio's streak is considered one of baseball's unbreakable records.
"There have been a lot of people trying to break that," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "I know, obviously in our lifetime, it probably won't happen. I don't even know how to comprehend it, to be honest with you."
