Beat the Streak Report: Wednesday, August 17

Current leader jturner trucked ahead to 36 games last night thanks to a 3-for-4 effort from Rangers third baseman Michael Young. Interview questions have been sent out, so hopefully we can all find out a little more about the mystery man tomorrow morning. Foreshadowing! Dun-dun-dunnnnn

Elsewhere, mjb22nml (33 games) and ctjohnson84 (31 games) have crept up the leaderboard in turner’s shadow. Just 33 Streakers have broken the 30-game threshold this season, so that accomplishment is certainly nothing to snort and/or sneeze at.

Enjoy Wednesday’s answer key below. The Rays and Red Sox kick things off at 1:35.
