The all time MLB record is 17 consecutive plate appearances reaching base by Frank Ward in 1893. Ward got 8 hits, 8 walks, and hit by a pitch once.

Tigers, became the first MLB player to hit 7 consecutive. 12 inning game. (I'm pretty sure it's been done since.) CONSECUTIVE HITS: As I see the question, it is not only in one game and even tough it is registered that Walt Droppo fo Detroit had 12 consecutive hits in a streak during the 1952 season, John Kling of the Cubs in 1902, according the SABR has that record -12-, tied by Droppo. It was done from the 24 to 28 of August. By the way, nobody else has done it without walks in between. In one game? Rennie Stennet of the Pittsburg Pirates has the modern record of 7, considering 9 innings (September 16, 1975). CÃ©sar GutiÃ©rrez did it, as shown above, in 12 IPs (June 21, 1970) with Detroit; the only ones.
