Hanley Ramirez's stealing streak is over

It's time to start a new one .

Hanley Ramirez's streak of nine consecutive steals without being caught ended at the plate Sunday.

With runners at the corners, two out and Jeremy Hermida hitting in the fifth, Ramirez broke for home. Brewers' left-handed starter Manny Parra tossed a monkey wrench into the plan when he made a crisp pickoff throw to first.

Ramirez would have beat Prince Fielder's throw home, except catcher Mike Rivera made a great block. Rivera dropped down his left shin guard, and Ramirez didn't come close to the dish.

For the time being, Chuckie Carr's team record of 15 straight is safe.  But for how long?
