Season leader: spooky93, 48 games
spooky93’s season-high 48-game streak may be over, but the race for 57 is still on. New leader dalmeetz048 extended his streak to 33
games on the strength of a 2-for-4 effort from Texas All-Star Josh Hamilton.
Second-place contestant mday1018 stayed two games behind the leader
thanks to a 2-for-4 night from Yankees All-Star Alex Rodriguez.
eazyeric, whose 28-game streak puts him in a tie for fourth place with
hdchannel, stayed alive with a first-inning double by Placido Polanco.
The early hit proved to be a lifesaver for eazyeric, as Polanco didn’t
manage a hit in his remaining six trips to the dish in the Tigers’ 15-inning affair.
