Season leader: spooky93, 40 games
Ladies and gentleman, we have our first 40-game streak of the season!
Spooky93 reached that elusive plateau thanks to a 2-for-4 performance from Houston’s Lance Berkman. Last year, just 14 fans compiled a streak of at least 40 games.
Spooky93 also distanced himself from the competition, as the two fans on his tail saw their respective streaks of 35 and 30 games snapped due to hitless days from Adrian Gonzalez and Chipper Jones.
That left room for a new fan to jump into the second-place spot, his streak at 28 games following a 2-for-4 night from hard-hitting second baseman Ian Kinsler.
