Yesterday’s results

Mark Buehrle’s perfect game thwarted the 7.7 percent of BTS contestants who picked Tampa Bay’s Carl Crawford — who owned a sizzling .474 average vs. Buehrle since ’04 — though it didn’t affect anybody in the Top 5.

momfannie remained the top mom with her selection of Ichiro, who went 2-for-4 to boost her streak to 32 games. rbgoulet1 picked a good day for Joe Mauer to snap out of his slump, getting a 3-for-4 effort from the All-Star catcher to remain one game behind in the standings.

matt1448 held onto third place, moving up to 29 games thanks to a 1-for-3 day from Chase Utley, while bigshowmarko took advantage of Ichiro’s big show to take over sole possession of fourth, at 26 games.

Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players

1. Albert Pujols (STL): 13.8%, 0-for-0
