Well it was a sad day as I finally had to cut ties with Matt Joyce. Hey, I had to activate Jason Heyward!
Box scores, please…
4th and Home Player of the Day: Cliff Lee – 2-hit SHO/4:2…The pitching gems just keep on coming.
Adam Lind – 2/4, R, HR, RBI…Still at it.
J.J. Hardy – 2/5, R, HR, RBI…Now 5 HR in June and batting over .400. Did you listen to Killboy?
Kosuke Fukudome – 3/5, 3 R, HR, 4 RBI…Batting ,301 now as half-a-platooner.
Alfonso Soriano – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…Batting .275 with 13 HR. Not bad considering he’s missed some time.
Ryan Braun – 1/3, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…Like Kemp, also on pace for a 30/40 season. I’m inclined to think his steals drop soon.
Danny Espinosa – 3/5, R, HR, 4 RBI…Eight hits his last three games.
Albert Pujols – 2/4, 2 R, HR, RBI…HR no. 7 in June. He’s back.
Matt Holliday – 2/3, R, HR, RBI…He’s back too – from the DL.
Chipper Jones – 3/5, R, HR, 5 RBI…Met killer.
Jordan Schafer – 5/6, 3 R…Take a flier deep leaguers!
Adrian Gonzalez – 2/3, R, HR, RBI…Batting .347 now. Guy has just been huge this year.
C.J. Wilson – 8/7/2/10:3…Jesse’s man-crush (let’s retire that word from sports) Ks 10X more in this one than his last start.
Nick Blackburn – 8/7/0/1:1…Decent numbers this year. I didn’t know.
Gio Gonzalez – 6/5/2/10:2…That;s the Gio we all love!
Be sure to keep a look out for my May recaps of the “September Star” series.
