The reign at the top of the BTS leaderboard was a short one for dustinhahn29, whose selection of Rays speedster Carl Crawford (0-for-3) ended his streak at 29 games. JohnnyV21 also fell from his perch near the front of the pack, getting a 0-for-3 effort from the normally reliable Albert Pujols to snap his run at 28 games.
That leaves jackstraw0018 and redlandsrick as the new BTS co-leaders with their 27-game streaks. Choterita and tjb0424 are tied for third at 26 games, and khaarer rounds out the Top 5 with a 25-gamer.
