Yesterday’s results

BTS leader bassman inched one step to closer to the record books last night thanks to Alex Rodriguez, who went 1-for-3 in New York’s loss to the Twins. A-Rod swatted a first-inning single off Minnesota hurler Glen Perkins to extend bassman’s streak to 34 games.

Second-place fan eduneversaydie capitalized on David Wright’s 2-for-5 night to stretch his streak to 29 games. Fellow second-place competitor vidrohater, along with third-place fan cali_kid, both saw their streaks continue courtesy of Joe Mauer, who delivered a first-inning single of Sidney Ponson in a 1-for-2 effort. Competitor jpsteeleaz69, who shares a tie for fourth place with cali_kid, stayed in the hunt after Jose Reyes went 2-for-5 against Zach Duke and the Pittsburgh ‘pen.

Jpsteeleaz69 was one of 7.6 percent of fans that made Reyes yesterday’s most-picked player. Albert Pujols, who was chosen by 5.4% of fans, was the only one of yesterday’s most-picked players that didn’t pull through. The All-Star first baseman was held hitless in four trips to the dish against Anibal Sanchez and the Marlins relievers.
