Friday the 13th came early for several BTS participants, as five streaks of at least 24 games were snapped.
Magglio Ordonez was the main cause of the upheaval, as the long-locked outfielder went 0-for-4 to knock four fans out of the Top 10. Hanley Ramirez, the most popular pick of the day at 6.8 percent, also went hitless in four at-bats to end a 25-game run for one leader.
Ironically, it was a fan with the user name of spooky93 who overcame the curse and jumped into the top spot, getting a 2-for-5 day from hot-hitting Grady Sizemore to boost his streak to 27 games.
