With 18.1 percent of participating fans going with Philly’s Chase Utley, a hefty chunk of the BTS leaders would have fallen from the pack had the All-Star second baseman come up empty-handed.
However, Utley showed why he’s one of the most reliable hitters in the game with a fifth-inning home run off Washington’s Jason Marquis, keeping many early streaks alive.
With nine days of play in the books, several hundred users remain tied for the BTS lead, so keep those winning picks coming.
Yesterday’s Top 5 most selected players
1. Chase Utley (PHI): 18.1%, 1-for-3
2. Ichiro Suzuki (SEA): 6.6%, 0-for-4
3. Miguel Cabrera (DET): 5.6%, 1-for-4
4. Matt Holliday (STL): 5.1%, 0-for-3
5. Albert Pujols (STL): 4.8%, 2-for-3
