Yesterday’s results

For the second time in less than a week, there was upheaval in the Beat the Streak world as a streak of 30-plus games came to an end.

The BTS leader tabbed Hunter Pence to keep his 34-game run alive, but Houston’s super sophomore went 0-for-3. Pence nearly got one more opportunity to pick up a hit, but he was left watching from the on-deck circle as Carlos Lee flew out to end the game.

That left a new No. 1 in the BTS rankings, who pushed his streak to 32 games thanks to a 1-for-3 day from B.J. Upton.
