Where the Hell did those 9 runs come from??? Not to mention 4 in one inning!
I won’t say Lucas Duda was the difference but with a pair of hits and an RBI he certainly chipped in to do his part. It’d be great to finish in 3rd as opposed to last but more importantly I want to see Duda get back in his Big League groove again.
Lucas has never been overly confident in the Bigs so I’d hate to send him into the off season in a fragile mental place. We need his bat to blossom next season. Ownership is already telling us they won’t increase payroll so there will be no big bat coming via free agency therefore it’s imperative Duda picks it up from now till game 162.
Meanwhile Chris Young has really fallen off the cliff lately.
