Beat the Streak Report: Monday, August 15

Annnnd down goes Dan Uggla. The Braves second baseman saw his 33-game hitting streak go up in smoke after an 0-for-3 effort against Matt Garza, Darwin Barney and the rest of the Cubs on Sunday afternoon.

Current BTS leader jturner fared considerably better over the weekend, reaching 34 games thanks to Matt Kemp yesterday. Turner could be in a position to overtake the season lead — and the 10 G’s that come with it — as soon as Sunday.

Good luck, and may the horse be with you in the coming week.

      Lol. If you read the comments on that prop, there’s alot of pi$$ed off ppl. I think the ruling on a GRD is single than awarded a 2nd base. B/c maybe the fielder could’ve made a play at second if the ball doesn’t bounce out. I dunno, but I’m not complaining as I had No there.

    I have a streak of four, but it’s listed as two on every BTS page. Is anybody else seeing a glitch like this?
