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.

Sneaky move by LoMo to hit 10 games then go on the DL. After today, he won’t make this list again until he reaches 11. Get well soon, buddy!
