The Top 5 — the last remaining BTS competitors capable of reaching 57 games — all survived to play another day. BTS leader cubdane took another step closer to Joe DiMaggio at 35 games after staying with the hot-hitting Dustin Pedroia, who went 1-for-3 against the Orioles.
Also benefiting from Pedroia’s performance was rustyolson56, whose streak improved to 32 games. Keeping pace were his third-place counterparts jnay017 and trizzy7 (yesterday’s Fan of the Day), thanks to the steady hitting of Raul Ibanez (2-for-4) and Albert Pujols (1-for-4), respectively.
Picking Pujols also kept second-place competitor huhino in the running, right behind cubdane, at 33 games.
