Yesterday’s results

Pedroia_275.jpgInspired by yesterday’s Fan of the day profile, BTS leader jtfluet5 took another step up the ladder at 35 games when Dustin Pedroia singled in four at-bats vs. Tampa Bay. Another hit would tie jtfluet5 for the sixth-highest streak of 2008.

With driversmasher77 knocked out of the running, mwkegg moved into second place at 29 games, thanks to a 1-for-4 performance from the ever-popular Ichiro Suzuki. The Mariners leadoff man was selected by 8.1 percent of competitors, more than any other hitter.

Also gaining in popularity was Manny Ramirez, who rewarded ianyankee and albert_lun — the third and fourth-place competitors — with a two-run homer against San Diego.
