There was little change at the top of the BTS leaderboard, as the Top 5 fans all held onto their spots.
The top two placeholders got just enough from Ichiro Suzuki (1-for-5), pushing their respective streaks to 33 and 29 games.
One significant streak of 24 games came to an end after Minnesota’s Alexi Casilla went 0-for-3, dropping the fan from a tie for sixth place.
No members of the Top 10 went with Chipper Jones or Placido Polanco, though the Braves’ thumping third baseman (2-for-5) and the Tigers’ sizzling second baseman (4-for-4) both delivered more than enough to justify their rankings as the two most popular picks of the day.
