Yesterday’s results

The three contestants who entered Wednesday in a tie for first place, at 31 games, all kept their streaks intact to remain together for at least one more day.

famillehlg and wildtanners were among the 17 percent of BTS contestants who selected Ichiro Suzuki, a fine choice given the hit machine’s 2-for-4 night vs. the Orioles. Fellow leader justinleslie instead went with Vladimir Guerrero, but the result was the same (2-for-4).

gregnewprague kept in close pursuit, extending his hit streak to 31 games thanks to a two-hit effort from Chone Figgins, and wiq_ed rounded out the Top 5 by tabbing Ichiro to move up to 29 games.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 17.0%, 2-for-4
2. Joe Mauer (MIN): 3.6%, 2-for-4

    I had a similar problem earlier this year. Chances are, it will fix itself. If not, you can go ahead and contact them from the homepage.
