Yesterday’s results

With recently named NL Player of the Week Chipper Jones resting his strained quad, BTS participants were forced to pick a non-.400 hitter to keep their streaks alive.

The gutsiest pick of the day was made by the individual who tabbed little-known Reds outfielder Jerry Hairston Jr. to keep his 23-game streak alive. Hairston fractured his left thumb while stealing a base in the first inning, but the single he collected in his lone at-bat was enough to push the faithful BTS fan into a tie for sixth place.
