Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, August 9

A whopping 21.7 percent of all selectors rolled with Jacoby Ellsbury yesterday, and the Red Sox outfielder came through with a 2-for-5 evening.

Current leader Fatcat3415 went against the grain with Michael Young, but the Rangers infielder made good with one hit in five trips to the plate. The Big Kitty’s 33-game run puts him within a week of tying jonroy73 for the season’s longest Streak.
