Yesterday’s results

The BTS leader continued his march toward the magic number of 57, extending his hitting streak to 34 games thanks to a 2-for-4 day from Chipper Jones.

The second- and third-ranked BTS players were among those who did not pick Jones, and wound up paying dearly for their decisions. The second-place fan saw his streak snapped at 32 games with an 0-for-2 day from Albert Pujols, while Garrett Atkins went 0-for-4 to end the third-place holder’s run at 30 games.
