Season leader: jerrymohr, spooky93, 39 games
Spooky93’s success in Beat the Streak is becoming … well, spooky.
The BTS leader extended his run to 39 games thanks to a 1-for-2 day from Vladimir Guerrero, tying him for the longest streak posted by a fan this season. Last year, 14 participants reached the 40-game plateau, with the winner topping out at 49 in a row.
The second-place fan extended his own lengthy streak to 35 games with a 1-for-5 day from Ian Kinsler, while the 30-game club got a new member thanks to a two-hit performance from Lance Berkman.
There was one notable fall from the top ranks as Jeff Landgraf, Monday’s fan of the day, saw his 32-game streak come to an end.
