Had David Wright not collected a hit last night, there would have been major upheaval at the top of the BTS standings.
But Mr. Wright came through with a single in his first at-bat, pushing leader TannerNielsen’s streak to 45 games. The single also extended the streaks of each of the subsequent seven contestants in the standings.
Second-place fan paulcmoss84 moved up to 39 games, one ahead of crtownse. FROD is up to 36 games, while 0nmoskovits and jrjbears share fifth place with their 33-game streaks.
