Here are my Beat the Streak pics for April 24th, 2016.
Tommy LaStella – Chicago Cubs against Alfredo Simon and the Cincinnati Reds
Chase Utley – Los Angeles Dodgers against Jordan Lyles and the Colorado Rockies
Why I chose LaStella
He was only 1 for 3 lifetime against Alfredo Simon, but today was a spot starter and was batting lead off for the Cubs at Cincy.
Why I chose Utley
For his career, he was 4 for 9 off of Jordan Lyles and was batting lead off in Coors Field.
LaStella was 3 for 5 with 2 doubles and a home run.
Chase Utley was 2 for 6 with a double.
