Yesterday’s results

Two BTS top dogs fell from grace this past weekend, as Nicklarsen84 and Motorhead lost their streaks at 35 and 34 games, respectively.

That paved the way for buhtter, diamondmike and jagzrule77 to pull into a three-way tie atop the leaderboard.  Each rode a different player to 34-game streaks, as buhtter took Hanley Ramirez (3-for-5), diamondmike selected Joe Mauer (2-for-5) and jagzrule77 got a 1-for-4 effort from Andre Ethier. 

Breathing down the necks of the Top 3 are rbier2000 and thatsawinner, who are at 33 games apiece.
