Make Last Games Count For The Counting Stats

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 2-3 with 1 BB, 1 HBP, 1 double (his 42nd), and 1 run scored against the Reds. He was taken out of the game after he was hit in the elbow a la Tommy Hanson earlier in the season. He is listed as day-to-day. Braun needs to score 3 more runs and drive in 7 more runs to reach 100 runs scored and 100 RBIs. He has 11 more games to do it.

Batting 5th, Ike Davis 2-4 with 1 run scored against the Marlins.

Batting cleanup, Danny Valencia was 0-4 against the Indians. This was the 1st game all year where he has hit 4th in the lineup.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 0-6 against the Angels.

Sam Fuld was used as a late inning defensive replacement in left field against the Giants.

Jason Marquis received a no-decision. He went 6 innings and gave up 2 runs on 7 hits, 1 BB, and 2 Ks against the Astros. I'd say he atoned.

42 doubles is a lot of doubles. Imagine the season Braun would have had if his wrist didn't bother him. Here's a neat stat. Braun has come up with a runner on second and no outs 39 times and he has advanced that runner 22 times or 56% of the time. Fielder did so only 32% of the time.

Good start for Marquis considering his last time out.
