Beat the Streak Report: Monday, April 2
Andre Ethier‘s National League Destruction Tour 2011 reached 27 games over the weekend, and plenty of you Streakers made it out for a show and an overpriced T-shirt along the way.
The Dodgers outfielder toasted the Pop Tarts for 7.2 percent of all gamers with a 1-for-3 yesterday, second only to Matt Holliday‘s 13.2 percent approval rate.
Ethier is now one contest clear of the current BTS leader, a gap that likely won’t be narrowed — barring a world-altering 0-fer — until L.A. takes a bye to recharge and refuel on Thursday. Until then, the show rolls on. Next potential victim: Cubs starter James Russell.
