Stats say Howard Kendrick was 0-3 but he was hit by a pitch and my streak went back to 0. Rules state I should not go back to 0.

A hitting streak will also NOT end if each of the selected player’s plate appearances (one or more) result in a base on balls, hit batsman, defensive interference or a sacrifice bunt.

Yeah it’s if “each” of his plate appearances result in one of those. But that only happened in 1 of his 4 at-bats. It’s correct your streak ended.

Howie kendrick got hit by a pitch and had a sac bunt, so if those were his only two at bats your streak would have continued, but he went 0 for 3 in his other at-bats so the streak ended.

I picked him yesterday too and was hating the fact that he had to sacrifice in the 8th inning with my streak on the line.

Ok thanks
