Season leader: spooky93, 41 games
Spooky93 continued his charge toward BTS immortality, riding a 3-for-3 day from the sizzling Lance Berkman to push his streak to 41 games.
Berkman also came though for several other fans with an eye on the top prize, as he was the most popular pick of the day at 8.4 percent.
Unfortunately, many other top picks were not able to reward the faith shown in them by fans. Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter wound up with no official at-bats in a postponed game, which did not affect any streaks, but Derrek Lee, Carl Crawford and Aramis Ramirez all went hitless to dash the hopes of many a BTS participant.
