Play Beat the Streak now -- and make these picks

June 27th, 2022

Beat the Streak is back for the 2022 season -- and the $5.6 million prize is still up for grabs.

The idea is simple -- pick one player (or two) every day who you think will get a hit. The objective -- surpass Joe DiMaggio's record-long 56-game hitting streak -- is a bit more challenging.

But we are here to help with that. We'll provide BTS leaderboard updates and daily insights on favorable matchups in this space, as well as every weekday on the new “Beat the Streak Daily: Inside the Hits” podcast.

Let's take a closer at the action from yesterday and today:

Trea Turner and Freddie Freeman, Dodgers (vs. Rockies)
The best offense in the Majors (in terms of runs per game and OPS) playing at Coors Field? Sign us up. This is a perfect spot to double down on a couple of Dodgers hitters, and both Turner and Freeman come into this one swinging the bat well of late. They also get a decent matchup against Rockies starter Chad Kuhl, who has a 5.59 ERA and is allowing opponents to hit .321 over his past eight starts.

Tim Anderson, White Sox (vs. Angels)
Anderson has been held hitless in back-to-back games, but he's still .339 on the season. He's also gone hitless in three straight games just once over the past three seasons -- so safe to say he's due. He'll be facing Noah Syndergaard, who has very much been a boom-or-bust starter this season. Over his past seven starts, Syndergaard has allowed just a single run in four of them -- but a whopping 16 runs in the other three.


Royals (vs. Rangers -- Martín Pérez)
Pérez enters this matchup with a 1.96 ERA and he's holding opponents to a .239 average. He's also allowed just two home runs in 87 1/3 innings this season.

Cardinals (vs. Marlins -- Pablo López)
López has cooled off a big after his remarkable start to the season, but he still enters with a 2.61 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 82 2/3 innings.
