It was a rocky day at the front of the BTS pack, as three of the Top 5 contestants saw their streaks snapped due to quiet days from Marlon Byrd (0-for-3), Ryan Braun (0-for-2) and Ian Kinsler (0-for-4).
But redlandsrick was able to steer clear of the 0-for bug, getting just enough from Michael Young (1-for-4) to take over sole possession of first place at 28 games. Choterita and adnaz both scored a winner by tabbing Ichiro Suzuki (1-for-5), leaving them in second and third place with their respective streaks of 27 and 25 games.
