Lucas Duda’s bonkers run continues: he was 2-4 with a three-run homer. It was his sixth home run in his last 12 games. Since his return from his back strain, in his last 12 games, Duda is hitting .410/.510/.923 with two doubles and six homers with seven walks and nine strikeouts in 39 AB. Sure, that’s a .417 BABIP, but he’s just killing the ball.
Ouch, Josh Stinson: 1.1 IP, 6 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 1 SO, 1 HR. In two starts vs. Indianapolis this year, Stinson has given up 16 runs and 17 hits in six innings for a 22.50 ERA. As Mike Harrington pointed out, he’s at 4.09 vs. the rest of the league.
Fernando Martinez and Kirk Nieuwenhuis both took 0-fors.
