Yesterday’s top fan results
The current overall Beat the Streak leader went with yesterday’s most popular pick, and it paid off — albeit at the 11th hour, as Manny went hitless in his first four at-bats before collecting a single on a sharp grounder to left in Boston’s final at-bat in the bottom of the eighth.
Meanwhile, two fans extended their streak to 29 games thanks to the efforts of Michael Young (1-for-4) and Albert Pujols (3-for-5).
