Yesterday’s results

baltimore20 continued to lead the BTS charge, getting just enough from Cleveland slugger Victor Martinez (1-for-4) to extend his streak to a season-high 27 games. baltimore20 also achieved some separation from the pack, as the immediate competition for second place fell off over the weekend. nico27945 currently ranks behind the leader with a 25-game streak, while two more are tied for third at 24 games.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Albert Pujols (STL): 6.6%, 0-for-0
2. Aaron Hill (TOR): 5.1%, 0-for-4
3. Evan Longoria (TB): 3.5%, 1-for-4
4. Nick Markakis (BAL): 3.5%, 1-for-4
5. Dustin Pedroia (BOS): 3.4%, 1-for-4

I think it’s a time for a new statistic which would measure how often a player gets at least one hit in a game:

Games With a Hit or More/Games Played

In 2004, when Ichiro set the record for most hits, he went
hitless in 27 of 161 games, so his percentage was .832
Such a stat would be useful for this contest and beyond.
How about it, MLB.com?

I was lucky to get a hit by Evan Longoria and begin again at 1.
