Yesterday’s results

BTS leader soxwhite24 took another step towards immortality last night, extending his streak to 36 games on the strength of Xavier Nady’s 1-for-4 effort against the Rangers. Nady helped soxwhite24 draw within 12 games of season-leader spooky93 after singling in the fourth inning off Texas starter Matt Harrison.

utleybts2.jpgTuesday’s fourth-place contestant, boobsmcoakes, lost his spot on the leaderboard after not making a pick. His departure left the door open for newcomer cali_kid, who joined the Top 5 after Chase Utley went 1-for-3 against Josh Johnson and the Marlins.

The rest of the Top 5 received clutch performances from their players to keep pace with the leader. Second-place contestant bassman put himself one game shy of the 30-game plateau by capitalizing on Dustin Pedroia’s 1-for-5 night against the Royals. Third-place competitor 92gm stayed alive thanks to Alex Rios (1-for-4), while taswanso moved up to the fourth spot after Russell Martin scraped out a 1-for-5 effort against St. Louis.
