Yesterday’s results

Houston’s Miguel Tejada was one of the hottest hitters in baseball heading into yesterday’s action, but he was cooled off by three Colorado pitchers. As such, his 0-for-5 performance not only snapped a personal 17-game hitting streak, it ended the runs of the Top 2 BTS contestants. waw_3card and ace21dlr placed their faith in the veteran shortstop, resulting in the finish of their respective streaks of 31 and 30 games.

And so, with a nod to the upcoming Belmont Stakes, a pack of seven contestants are rounding the corner and heading into the weekend in a tie for first at 30 games. We’ll see who can keep surging, and who will fade down the stretch.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Derek Jeter (NYY): 7.0%, 0-for-0
2. Carl Crawford (TB): 5.6%, 2-for-4
3. Jason Kubel (MIN): 5.1%, 3-for-4
4. Jason Bay (BOS): 4.7%, 1-for-5
5. Joe Mauer (MIN): 4.6%, 3-for-4
