There was upheaval in the BTS rankings, as two of the day’s Top 5 most popular picks — Chase Utley and Jermaine Dye — went 0-for-4 in their games.
Utley’s hitless day proved costly to the BTS leader, who’s back to the drawing board after his 28-game streak was snapped.
That left a new top dog on the leader board, who extended his streak to 27 games thanks to a 3-for-5 day from the sizzling Jose Guillen.
Michael Young (1-for-4), Johnny Damon (1-for-4) and Ian Kinsler (1-for-4) didn’t stuff the stat sheet, but they delivered just enough to push the next three fans into a tie for second at 26 games.
