Yesterday’s results

It was a good day in general for the BTS field, as every one of the Top 15 most selected players collected at least one base hit. Dodgers second baseman Orlando Hudson was among those players, and his 1-for-5 effort helped leader tyrules667 tie the BTS season-high streak of 29 games.

The day’s onslaught of offense wasn’t enough for second-place contestant jpburnett232, however, as Alfonso Soriano’s 0-for-4 performance ended his streak at 28 games. jjdemarest, dustinhahn and JohnnyV21 extended their respective streaks to 27, 26 and 25 games, and five more are tied for fifth place at 24 games.

1. Albert Pujols (STL): 8.8%, 1-for-4
2. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 6.8%, 1-for-4
3. Joe Mauer (MIN): 5.7%, 1-for-3
