There was little suspense for BTS leader waw_3card, who extended his streak to 30 games with the first of Hanley Ramirez’s three hits against Milwaukee. It marked the fourth time this season that a contestant reached the 30-game plateau.
ace21dlr and dlmead8 remained one game behind with their respective picks of Derek Jeter (3-for-4) and Ryan Braun (1-for-3). And while a few fans dropped from the cluster tied for fourth place, 11 were fortunate enough to receive at least one hit and push their streaks to 28 games.
