MLB.com Fast Relief Beat the Streak -- Official Rules

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN

The object of MLB.com Fast Relief Beat the Streak (the "Contest") is to establish a virtual "saves streak" and keep it going for as long as possible. You'll do this by selecting one Major League Baseball ("MLB") player each game day, from a list displayed on MLB.com of MLB players who are on a MLB Club's active roster on that game day. If the player you select for that game day records a save in that day's game, your streak continues. If the player you select blows a save, you can still participate, but your streak is reset to zero. You must select a player each MLB game day; however, you can make your daily player selections for up to fifteen (15) calendar days in the future. If you fail to select a player for any MLB game day, your streak will automatically reset to zero. You can select any player as many times as you want over the course of the Contest Period (as defined below).

Selecting Your Players

Each day on which an MLB game is played during the Contest Period (each, a "Game Day"), you must select one (1) player from a list displayed on MLB.com of MLB players who are on a MLB Club's active roster on that Game Day (the "Active Players List"). If you fail to select a player for any Game Day, your streak will reset to zero. The Active Players List may change as a result of injury or other roster changes, so be alert. You may select any player from the Active Player List, including any player you have previously chosen. You will be permitted to make your player selection for any Game Day until five (5) minutes prior to the start of the first MLB game being played on that Game Day, after which you may not select a player or change your selection for that Game Day. You can make your daily player selection up to fifteen (15) calendar days prior to any Game Day and may change your selection until five (5) minutes prior to the start of the first MLB game being played on that Game Day. MLB.com's computer shall be the official clock of the Contest.

Establishing and Maintaining a Streak

All participants start at zero. Your streak is measured by the number of consecutive Game Day(s) the player(s) you select are credited with a save during the Contest Period.

If you select a player for any Game Day who records a blown save during the Game Day for which you selected him, your streak ends and must start to build your streak again from zero.

If a player you select does not play during the Game Day for which you selected him for any reason other than his MLB Club not being scheduled to play, your streak will NOT end. A saves streak will also NOT end if the selected player plays in an MLB game and does not record either a save or a blown save. Except as set forth in the Suspended Games Section below, your streak will remain intact in the event of any cancelled or postponed MLB game.

Doubleheaders

In the event that a player you select plays in a doubleheader, your streak will end if your player records a blown save in either game he plays in on that Game Day. In the event that your player records a save in one or both of the games played on that Game Day, your saves streak will only increase by one (1) save for that Game Day; provided, however, in the event your player records a save in the first game of a doubleheader and a blown save in the second game of the doubleheader, your saves streak will end and you WILL NOT receive a one (1) save increase for the save recorded in the first game of the doubleheader.

All scoring of saves and blown saves in the Contest is based on official scoring as confirmed by MLBAM. NOTE: Except as set forth in the Suspended Games section below, (a) only saves officially scored as saves in 2011 MLB regular season games will be counted as valid saves in the Contest, and (b) only blown saves officially scored as blown saves in 2011 MLB regular season games will be counted as valid blown saves in the Contest.

Suspended Games

The following shall apply in the event any 2011 MLB game(s) is suspended during the Contest Period (each, a "Suspended Game"):

1) In the event any Suspended Game (s) is subsequently completed within three (3) calendar days immediately following the date on which any such game(s) was suspended, for purposes of this Contest, all saves officially scored as saves and all blown saves officially scored as blown saves for such Suspended Game(s) shall count as valid saves and blown saves, as applicable, for the Game Day on which such Suspended Game(s) was originally scheduled.

Example: A participant selects Mariano Rivera to record a save during the May 4th game that is suspended. Rivera does not pitch in the first part of the game that is suspended on May 4th, but records a save in the portion of the Suspended Game that is resumed the next day, May 5th. In this case, although Rivera's save took place on May 5th, for purposes of this Contest, the save would count as a valid save for May 4th, Game Day on which such Suspended Game(s) was originally scheduled.

2) In the event any Suspended Game(s) is not completed within three (3) calendar days immediately following the date on which such game(s) was suspended, for purposes of this Contest, ONLY saves officially scored as saves and blown saves officially scored as blown saves in the portion of the game(s) that was played prior to the suspension will count as valid saves and blown saves, as applicable, for the Game Day on which such Suspended Game(s) was originally scheduled, provided either of the following conditions apply at the time such game(s) is suspended:

a. The MLB Club that is trailing in the portion of the game that was suspended (i) has made fifteen (15) or more outs in the game, and/or (ii) has completed all of its at-bats for five (5) innings; or

b. The home MLB Club (i) has made fifteen (15) or more outs, (ii) has completed all of its at-bats for five (5) innings, and/or (iii) has tied the game in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Under any of these circumstances, for purposes of this Contest, only saves officially scored as saves and blown saves officially scored as blown saves in the portion of the MLB game(s) that was played prior to the suspension will count as valid saves and blown saves, as applicable, for the Game Day on which such Suspended Game (s) was originally scheduled. As such, any saves officially scored as saves or blown saves officially scored as blown saves from any portion of any Suspended Game(s) that is completed four (4) or more calendar days immediately following the date on which the game(s) is suspended will NOT count as valid saves or blown saves, as applicable, for purposes of this Contest.

Example: A game started on Wednesday, May 18th between the Reds and Pirates is suspended with the score tied at 2-2 in the 7th inning. The game isn't resumed until Sunday, May 22nd (i.e., four (4) calendar days later), and the Tigers go on to win 3-2. In this case, all saves officially scored as saves and blown saves officially scored as blown saves from the first portion of the game (i.e., the portion played on May 21, prior to the game being suspended) will count as valid saves and blown saves, as applicable, for the May 21 game. Any saves officially scored as saves or blown saves officially scored as blown saves from the second portion of the game that was completed on May 25 will NOT count toward either game played on May 18 or May 22.

3) In the event any Suspended Game(s) is not completed within three (3) calendar days immediately following the date on which the game(s) was suspended, any saves officially scored as saves and blown saves officially scored as blown saves in any portion of such Suspended Game(s) will NOT count as valid saves and blown saves, as applicable, for purposes of this Contest provided either of the following conditions apply at the time such game(s) is suspended:

a. The MLB Club which is trailing has NOT (i) made fifteen (15) or more outs in the game, and/or (ii) completed all of its at-bats for five (5) innings; or

b. An MLB game is tied and the visiting MLB Club has NOT (i) made fifteen (15) outs or more in the game, or (ii) completed all of its at-bats for five (5) or more innings.

Under either of these circumstances, saves officially scored as saves and blown saves officially scored as blown saves for any portion(s) of any Suspended Game(s) will NOT count as valid saves or blown saves, as applicable, for purposes of this Contest. In other words, such saves and blown saves shall not apply to either the (1) Game Day on which the Suspended Game(s) was originally scheduled, or (2) Game Day on which the Suspended Game(s) was completed.

Example: A game played on Thursday, June 2nd between the Padres and Astros is suspended with the score tied at 4-4 in the 4th inning. The game isn't resumed until Monday, June 6th (i.e., four (4) calendar days later), and the Padres go on to win 8-5. In this case, none of the saves officially scored as saves and blown saves officially scored as blown saves will count for either part of the game and accordingly, for either Game Day of a Contest participant's streak.

Stat Corrections

Your saves totals will not be updated to reflect official MLB statistics corrections that occur more than three (3) calendar days after the completion of an entire Game Day's schedule of games.

For example: for a game played on Friday, June 3, the official scoring change would have to be made on or before Monday, June 6, to count toward a user's streak. If a scoring change for the Friday, June 3 game were to take place on Tuesday, June 7 (four calendar days later), the scoring change would NOT be reflected in your saves streak.
