It’s all come down to this, one game remains after Anthony Rizzo launched a solo home run in the first inning today to extend the no-hit streak! Only four contestants remain as there are only three points remaining, no it becomes strategy, the obvious pick might not be the smart ones for the guys in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. The standings are below, only the players that have a shot at the title are shown, best of luck guys. Be on the lookout for a message from @Cubsnohitstreak for how to submit your final pick.
Darwin Barney broke up the no-hitter against Kershaw in the first inning….hahaha, bet you never thought you would see that sentence. Only a handful of contestants remain as there are only nine total points remaining, time to get creative with your picks guys, and girls. @chicagosports91 extended his lead to three points last night, but it still up for grabs, get your picks in for today’s afternoon affair. Good luck, and go Cubs!
It hasn’t happened a lot (it will next year) but Starlin Castro lead off the game last night to give a few lucky people who still have faith in him three points. The race is tight, only 12 total possible points remaining (4 games), so if you are outside of that you are no longer on the standings, but thanks for playing! Here are the remaining contestants, good luck boys and girls!
What else is new? Junior Lake took the first pitch of the game and roped it into left field to give a number of players three points. Lake has now extended the streak three times since the contest started on 8/1, below are the standings through last nights game. Quick turnaround as the Cubs and Phillies get things going at 11:35 AM CST, so get your picks in!
Junior Lake is a popular choice in the no hit streak contest, as he should be. Lake got things started for the Cubs again yesterday making Junior Lake the correct choice in two out of the three games so far. Only two participants are perfect through three games, @WesJameson11, and @FWKRT have both picked the correct player and inning of all three games. There is a long way to go, but currently they are both tied atop the standings, get your picks in for today, 1:20 PM CST first pitch, good luck!
Yesterday was a fun day as myself, @CubsNoHitStreak and @CubicSnarkonia officially opened the Cubs no hit streak contest on twitter. We were blown away with the response as 68 fans entered the August contest, bravo Twitterverse. If you would like to get caught up on the contest please head over to World Series Dreaming to read the rules page, you can still get in for the September contest!
With one swing of the bat Junior Lake put 16 people into a tie for first place, a lot of people were all over Junior Lake last night, see that, we have very smart fans! The standings can change quickly however (2 points for correct player, 1 point for correct inning) so it will be a battle to the end. Remember, there are two ways to enter your pick each day after the lineup is released. One, you can tweet your player, and inning with #nohitstreakcontest somewhere in your tweet so we can track it, or two, you can email CubsNoHitStreakContest@gmail.com and we will grab your selection there. If you do email, please be sure to give us your twitter handle, player and inning.
Quite the start boys and girls, this should be a fun ride! Just a reminder, Cubs start at 3:05 PM CST today, please have your pick in to us before then, we will post the lineup as soon as it is out, thanks again for playing!
