Yesterday’s results

With Monday’s rains subsiding in most areas, fans had nearly a full slate of games to choose from. However, because three of the day’s Top 5 most selected players went hitless, only 19 people were able to extend their streaks to a BTS-best 16 games. The ever-reliable Albert Pujols came through for four of those 19 survivors, as he did for a BTS-high 10.8 percent of overall participants.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Albert Pujols (STL): 10.8%, 1-for-4
2. Hanley Ramirez (FLA): 5.0%, 1-for-4
3. Kevin Youkilis (BOS): 4.9%, 0-for-0
4. Brian Roberts (BAL): 4.6%, 0-for-3
5. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 3.3%, 0-for-4
