Batters headline today’s Breakdown, but a pitcher headlines the Bats and Arms…
4th and Home Player of the Day: Tim Hudson – 8/2/0/8:1…Hudson also hit a 2-run shot to secure victory for the Braves.
Carlos Santana – 3/4, 2 R, HR, RBI…Ok, it is ON!
Carlos Gonzalez – 3/5, 2 R, SB…Lead-off hitter excelling!
Nick Markakis – 3/4, 2 R…Don’t look now, but Markakis has 9 hits in his last 4 games. Where da power at?
Adrian Gonzalez – 3/5, 2 R, 3 RBI…Man On Fire.
Chase Headley – 4/5, 2 R…Batting .297 now. Career year? Still not exciting!
Orlando Hudson – 3/5, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI…O-Dog showing us he’s still alive.
Craig Gentry – 3/4, R, RBI, 3 SB…Cuddyer-esque!
Josh Hamilton – 2/4, 2 R, 2 RBI…The HR will start coming, Jesse. No worries.
Paul Konerko – 1/3, R, HR, 2 RBI…4th straight with a ding-dong.
Starlin Castro – 2/4, R, HR, 3 RBI, SB…BSFU!
Evan Longoria – 2/5, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI…Longo waking up back in the 3-hole (for good owners hope).
Anibal Sanchez – 7/8/0/8:0…Tough ND.
Jered Weaver – 7/5/1/6:1…Back to his winning ways.
Ivan Nova – 8/4/1/7:0…Remember in ST when I said he was a great groundball pitcher? Well, he was a K-artist last night!
Clayton Kershaw – 2-hit SHO/11:1…If it weren’t for Huddie blasting a HR, Kershaw would be our POD. Simply dominant performance.
Be sure to keep a look out for my May recaps of the “September Star” series. No, I haven’t forgotten…
