rbgoulet1 continued his march up the BTS charts, getting a 2-for-4 effort from Joe Mauer to extend his streak to 41 games.
Only Tanner Nielsen had a longer streak this season, and only 10 contestants have surpassed that mark in the game’s history.
eggman3131 is far enough behind rbgoulet1, but his 32-game streak is still good enough for second place. Third-place holder frish717 is the only other fan who currently owns a streak of at least 30 games.
