It was a good day for most of the BTS Top 10. Leader Brian Kaufman extended his hit streak to an impressive 38 games by tabbing switch-hitting thumper Lance Berkman, who went 1-for-3 vs. the Cardinals.
Two more fans reached the 30-game plateau thanks to 1-for-5 efforts from Miguel Tejada and Garrett Atkins.
Several BTS leaders kept their streaks alive by going with Berkman, Chipper Jones, Manny Ramirez and the usual superstar suspects. However, one member fell out of the Top 10 by naming Torii Hunter, the day’s sixth-most popular pick, who finished hitless in three official at-bats vs. the Tigers.
