Yesterday’s results

The three fans at the top of the BTS standings were aligned in their thinking Monday, as buhtter, diamondmike and jagzrule each went with Ichiro. However, since baseball’s single-season hit king was scratched from the lineup with a sore calf muscle, all three competitors held onto their 34-game streaks. 
The same went for thatsawinner, whose streak remained at 33 games after picking Ichiro. 
Heading into Tuesday’s action, thatsawinner stands alone in second place as rbier2000 saw his run come to an end in unlucky fashion when Carl Crawford exited Monday’s game vs. the Blue Jays after two hitless at-bats in the third inning.
