Season leader: spooky93, 44 games
The spooky93 run to immortality continues.
The BTS leader tabbed Michael Young, who was coming off a pair of multi-hit games and facing Philadelphia soft-tosser Jamie Moyer. Young didn’t exactly stuff the stat sheet in a 1-for-5 day, but his third-inning double was enough to boost spooky93’s streak to 44 games.
Meanwhile, the rest of the participants in the BTS world sought to extend their own marches toward 57. The two second-place fans went with New York shortstops Derek Jeter and Jose Reyes, receiving 2-for-4 performances that pushed their streaks to 26 games.
Two more fans are up to 25 games thanks to successful days from Hanley Ramirez (2-for-4) and Johnny Damon (1-for-4). However, it was the end of the line for one member of the BTS Top 5, who saw his 24-game snapped with a 0-for-4 day from Alex Rodriguez.
