Nelson Cruz‘s 3-run missile last night gave him 21 of those, and 55 RBI, half way to 110, on June 3. He’s done it again and will have still more nights like this. You’ll be reading about him plenty.
Caleb Joseph shared the night’s spotlight with a 2-for-4 game, coming in 2 for 29 with one RBI since joining the team May 7. His 8th-inning double scored Delmon Young to give the Baltimore Orioles a 3-2 lead, and three batters later, Cruz stepped to the plate.
Just as out of the ordinary was the fact that Adam Jones had a 4-hit night including a home run, and he wasn’t the highlight. Jones is hitting .339 since May 7. If George Steinbrenner were alive, he might be calling Jones “Mr. May,” although it would be a compliment rather than the slap it was intended as when George said it about Dave Winfield.
