Play Beat the Streak now –Star 3B

12: 34 PM UTC

The $5.6 million prize in Beat the Streak continues to be shared.

The theory is easy — pick one player (or two) each day who you imagine will receive a hit. The objective — surpass Joe DiMaggio’s record-long 56-game hitting streak — is really a little more challenging.

But we have been here to greatly help with that. We’ll provide BTS leaderboard updates and daily insights on favorable matchups in this space, and also every weekday on the brand new Beat the Streak Daily: In the Hits podcast.

Let’s have a closer consider the action from yesterday now:

2. Freddie Freeman, Dodgers (6.5%)

3. Paul Goldschmidt, Cardinals (4.7%)

4. Manny Machado, Padres (4.4%)

5. J.D. Martinez, Red Sox (4.3%)

Manny Machado, Padres (at Rockies)

Machado is playing at Coors Field — what else should you know? Though he’s experienced a funk recently, Machado appears to be appearing out of it, homering in two of his past four games. But if he wasn’t from it already, a vacation to hitter-friendly Coors Field — where he’s hitting .313 with a .918 OPS over 33 games since 2019 — will do just fine. In addition, it doesn’t hurt that Colorado is starting rookie right-hander Ryan Feltner, who includes a 6.05 ERA in 17 outings this year.

Austin Riley, Braves (at Phillies)

Riley has cooled off quite in the last 8 weeks, watching his season average drop from .301 entering August to .280 entering Friday’s game in Philadelphia. He’s hit just .235 throughout that span, but don’t dismiss this pick at this time. Not merely has Riley shown some signs lately at the plate, including going 3-for-3 contrary to the Phillies on Thursday night, but he’s got thrived against Aaron Nola previously. Riley is really a ridiculous 16-for-40 (.400) against Nola overall, but he’s really dominated the matchup lately. Riley is 6-for-13 (.462) with a set of doubles against Nola this year after going 7-for-15 (.467) with four extra-base hits (including a homer) this past year.

Twins (vs. Angels — Shohei Ohtani)

Ohtani includes a 2.43 ERA and is holding opposing hitters to a .213 average while accumulating a ridiculous 196 strikeouts in 148 innings.

D-backs (vs. Giants — Carlos Rodn)

Opposing batters are hitting just .204 this year against Rodn, who has allowed just 125 hits over 167 2/3 innings. He’s got abandoned three hits or fewer in 14 of his 29 starts.
