It was business as usual yesterday for BTS leader waw_3card, who extended his Major League-leading streak to 31 games thanks to — who else? — Ichiro Suzuki, who singled in three at-bats to extend his streak to 27 games.
Also thanks to Ichiro, ace21dlr remains one game behind waw_3card with a 29-game streak.
All in all, 21 of the Top 25 users advanced by picking Ichiro, but they’ll all have to find someone else to keep their dreams of attaining the $1 million-plus top prize alive, as the Mariners are off today — stay tuned!
