Get the best email in soccer.
It had to end sometime, and it ended on Tuesday. After scoring 10 goals in seven games, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez's goal-scoring streak is over after he couldn't find the net in Bayer Leverkusen's 1-1 draw against BATE Borisov in the UEFA Champions League.
His goals came in three competitions: the Bundesliga, the DFB Pokal and the Champions League.
Hernandez has 12 goals in total this year so far for Leverkusen: six in the Bundesliga, two in the DFB Pokal and four in the Champions League. He is Leverkusen's leading scorer, five ahead of the next-highest scorer.
During this latest streak he has set several records, becoming the highest-scoring Mexican ever in the Bundesliga.
Chicharito also scored in Mexico's Confederations Cup playoff win over the United States in October.
He already has more goals this year than he scored last year, when he got nine between Manchester United and his loan at Real Madrid. In fact, it's the most he's scored for his club in a season since the 2012-2013 season.
