Beat the Streak Report: Thursday, September 9
What’s good streakers? I’m Matt Chaprales and I’ll be handling the blog for a few days while Dave enjoys some much-needed time off.
It takes some spine to approach the territory our leader “bretzky26” is toeing these days, and once again he/she made a bold pick on Wednesday by selecting Orlando Cabrera.
However, O-Cab was given the day off.
That means “bretzky26” remains alone at the top with a 37-gamer.
Time for Thursday’s picks
Oh, hello there …
? Carlos Quentin: .417 AVG (5-for-12) lifetime vs. Tigers starter Rick Porcello
? Johnny Damon: .545 AVG (6-for-11) lifetime vs. White Sox starter Gavin Floyd
? Pablo Sandoval: .667 AVG (6-for-9) lifetime vs. Padres starter Jon Garland
Feeling kinda spicy?
? Omar Infante: .556 AVG (5-for-9) lifetime vs. Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright
You’ll thank me later…
? Miguel Tejada: .125 AVG (1-for-8) lifetime vs. Giants starter Matt Cain
? Edgar Renteria: .158 AVG (3-for-19) lifetime vs. Padres starter Jon Garland
? Albert Pujols: .200 AVG (2-for-10) lifetime vs. Braves starter Jair Jurrjens
While “bretzky26” was essentially idle on Wednesday, second-place streaker “astoclubgoer” succesfully rode Martin Prado — who collected two hits vs. the Pirates — to a 32-gamer.
Both “bhovekamp” and “shinn_8” extended their streaks to 30 games apiece by selecting Albert Pujols and Ichiro Suzuki, respectively.
