Additionally, since Sept. 27, 2011, Bonifacio has stolen 16 consecutive bases without being caught, which also ties the club record. Juan Pierre stole 16 straight from May 30-July 6, 2005.
It was Bonifacio's 51st stolen base since last June 20. He's been caught eight times.
He was off and running Tuesday on the second pitch to Hanley Ramirez from Houston starter Aneury Rodriguez. But the Marlins' third baseman fouled it off. He was gone again on the next pitch and easily swiped it, beating the throw from Astros catcher Jason Castro with a headfirst slide.
