Does this end a 40 game hitting streak?

This week we named Plainfield’s (Ind) Ashton Slone as the SSN National High School Softball player of the week?

Slone was walked five times intentionally in her last game played on Thursday (4-27-17) , but did score 3 runs in her teams 9-7 win in 8 innings over Martinsville.

Writing the story we said Slone’s streak ended with that game at 40 games in a row, in an email reply from the Plainfield Softball twitter they said that the streak is not over and will continue because she was intentionally walked 5 times?

So what do you think? Is the streak done or does it extend to the next game?  Either way Slone has had a fantastic run, whether is stops at 40 or rolls on.

In baseball, a hitting streak refers to the number of consecutive official games in which a player appears and gets at least one base hit. According to the Official Baseball Rules, such a streak is ended when a player has at least 1 plate appearance and no hits. A streak shall not be terminated if all official plate appearances result in a base on balls, hit by pitch, defensive interference or a sacrifice bunt. The streak shall terminate if the player has a sacrifice fly and no hit.
