Season leader: jerrymohr, 39 games
The BTS leader held onto his top spot, receiving a pair of doubles from Twins thumper Justin Morneau to extend his streak to 28 games.
He also separated himself from the pack just a little bit, as the three fans tied for second at 26 games all saw their streaks come to an end.
It wasn’t a matter of bad decision-making, either. Lance Berkman was coming off a three-hit game, Alex Rodriguez entered the day with two hits in five straight games and Michael Young owned a Major League-high 23-game hit streak, but all three delivered off-days at an inopportune time.
