Yesterday’s results

There were no changes at the top of the BTS leaderboard, as famillehlg, justinleslie and wildtanners all extended their streaks to 31 games.

The wait was over quickly for famillehlg, who received a first-inning blast from Chipper Jones to keep his run alive. But things were a little more tense for justinleslie, who had to wait until the fifth inning for Hanley Ramirez to pick up his lone hit, and especially for wildtanners, who had to wait until the eighth for Derek Jeter to come through with a home run.

Just behind the leaders, gregnewprague also benefited from Jeter’s late dramatics to remain in fourth place at 30 games. kbg_1992 and wiq_ed, who hold joint custody of the fifth spot, extended their streaks thanks to a fifth-inning single from Aaron Hill.

    7362 are serious players (people with a streak of 3+ games)

    My brother has streak of five games. That puts him at the 38th percentile.
    My top streak of 10 games puts me at the 6th percentile.

    But my brother has not installed the facebook application, so he really doesn’t count in these stats. 😛
