Choterita held steady in first place at 31 games as his pick for the day, Felipe Lopez, did not play in Arizona’s loss to Oakland. That left an opening for adnaz to creep one game closer to a tie for the top spot, and Ichiro Suzuki (2-for-4) came through with the goods to push his streak to 30 games.
