The BTS leader continued his impressive run, boosting his streak to 32 games thanks to a 1-for-4 day from Washington shortstop Cristian Guzman.
A 1-for-4 performance from Lance Berkman helped another fan extend his streak to 28 games. He took over sole possession of second place after Chipper Jones — the most popular pick of the day at 8.4 percent — went 0-for-2 with two walks to end another streak of 27 games.
Also falling from the leader board was one of the fifth-place streakers, who had the misfortune of picking Jacoby Ellsbury on a day when the rookie speedster didn’t start. Ellsbury grounded into a fielder’s choice in his lone at-bat, ending the fan’s run at 24 games.
