While Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp didn’t exactly light up Ubaldo Jimenez and the Rockies, he did manage to collect one hit in five at-bats. That was enough for j.harv8 to extend his BTS-leading streak to 34 games.
bbennett71032, who began the day in second place, didn’t enjoy as much luck. Going with Joe Mauer on a day when the Twins backstop finished with a rare 0-for-4 performance, bbennett71032 watched his 30-game run come to an end.
That enabled Braves10 to take over second place, at 29 games, with his selection of Miguel Cabrera (1-for-3). crowleybs remained one game behind by tabbing Hanley Ramirez (3-for-4), taking over third place with the end of CheckMark’s 28-game streak.
