Light day of action, but some noteworthy performances. It was the night of 2-HR games!
4th and Home Player of the Day: Asdrubal Cabrera – 3/5, 3 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…The career year continues.
Derrek Lee – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI…Nice first game for the Bucs. And you KNOW this will be his last!
Jason Kipnis – 3/5, 3 R, HR, RBI…Two straight with a homer. Look out!
Rick Ankiel – 2/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…Not bad coming from your lead-off hitter.
Dan Uggla – 3/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI…Four HR in his past 4 games makes Uggla one of baseball’s hottest hitters.
Mike Stanton – 2/5, R, HR, 4 RBI…Grand slam in extras!
Matt Holliday – 2/3, R, HR, 2 RBI…Only 15 HR? Weak!
Paul Goldschmidt – 1/4…Biggest bat in the majors singles in his first MLB at bat. Get your claims in!
C.C. Sabathia – 8/10/2/6:0…Not bad, but he’s here because it was win no. 16.
Zack Greinke – 6/7/2/5:1…Here’s where Greinke turns it up and the Brew Crew run away with the Central.
Ian Kennedy – 8/6/2/7:1…Now 13-3. ESPN called him the “former Yankee great.” WTF are they talking about?!?!
Coming soon…the July Review of my September Stars Series…
