Yesterday’s results

It was a banner day for the BTS leaders, as the Top 8 placeholders all managed to extend their streaks of at least 24 games.
The top two players both went with Lance Berkman, and Houston’s switch-hitting thumper rewarded their faith with a three-hit effort. That extended the leader’s run to an impressive 34 games, and bumped the second-place fan up to the 30-game plateau.

Ryan Garko’s hitless day led to the demise of a 23-game streak, knocking the fan from a tie for ninth place.

It also turned out to be a bad day to go with Chipper Jones. The Atlanta third baseman is still batting an amazing .394, but his 0-for-4 game had 10.2 percent of the BTS participants feeling not so Chipper.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Chipper Jones (ATL): 10.2%, 0-for-4
2. Lance Berkman (HOU): 9.7%, 3-for-5
3. Matt Holliday (COL): 7.3%, 2-for-3
4. Alex Rodriguez (NYY): 5.0%, 1-for-4
5. Josh Hamilton (TEX): 3.3%, 2-for-4
