Beat the Streak Report: Thursday, August 11
Another day, another Red Sox hitter disappointing more than a quarter of the Streaking population. Following in the footsteps of Dustin Pedroia, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez pulled the stunt last night with a 0-for-4 performance against the Twins.
Current champ jturner reached the 30-game threshold thanks to Robinson Cano but still sits a lengthy 10 days from challenging Jonanthan Roy for the season’s longest run and the $10,000 prize that comes with it.
