Valencia's Middle Name Is Clutch

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 3-4 with 1 BB and 1 RBI against the Rays. Valencia's RBI-single in the 10th inning gave the Twins a 3-2 lead, but they couldn't hold on - in part - because of Sam Fuld.

Batting leadoff, Fuld was 2-5 with 1 run scored and 1 SB (his 7th) against the Twins. Fuld got on base with a 1-out single in the bottom of the 10th inning before Johnny Damon hit a walkoff HR.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 0-2 with 2 BBs, 1 run scored, and 1 SB (his 1st) against the Pirates.

Batting cleanup, Ike Davis was 0-2 with 2 BBs and 1 run scored against the Rockies in the 1st game of a doubleheader. Batting 5th in the 2nd game, Ike was 0-3 with 1 BB and 1 run scored.

Interesting dynamic with Valencia and Fuld there.

Isn't it amazing how Fuld has gotten so famous!? Have you been following this amazing story?

I have. Remarkable that a guy the Cubs barely gave a second thought about is making so much noise - even in Fantasy Baseball. Cubs made the same mistake with Casey McGehee.
