Now for the better stuff:
- Ronny Paulino was 2-4 with a double and threw out a runner. He'll be back in the big leagues shortly.
- Fernando Martinez was 2-4 with a double and 3 RBI. In 34 AB, he's hit .353/.405/.529.
- Ruben Tejada was 4-5 with a triple, homer and three runs scored. The 21-year old is hitting .293/.348/.451 in his 22 games in AAA this year.
Oooof, Robert Carson: 3 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 2 HR
Ooof, Matt Harvey: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K , HR, HP
This should stop the cries for Harvey to go to AA for at least ten minutes.
In better news, Matt den Dekker was 2-3 with a triple to extend his hitting streak to 12 straight games. Overall, in 20 games the 23-year old den Dekker is hitting a robust .381/.404/.619.
Despite struggling against lefties last year (.250/.300/.321 in 28 AB), den Dekker is crushing southpaws at a .515/.515/.758 rate in 33 AB last year and hitting .294/.339/.529 against righties. Last year he smacked around SAL righties at a .382/.440/.526 clip.
