Eric Byrnes just hit HR No. 20. a line drive into the third row of seats in left field.
That ties his personal best set in 2004.
He had an infield single his first time up, so we are already at True Elation (18) True Elation 17 was last night, when he went 3-5 with 1 RBI (and 1 R).
Byrnesie did this off the right-handed Woody Williams, out of the cleanup spot, which has been the worst performing cleanup hole in the league this year.
And to make it even nicer, Johonny Estrada hit one to right to go back to back with Byrnesie.
The score is now 4-1. Brandon Webb having hit a double to drive in two runs.
One more HR. by Byrnesie sets a new personal best for him. He now needs only two more stolen bases this season to be a 20/20 guy.
Yea! Byrnesie! If he’s not batting cleanup tomorrow, Melvin’s head needs to be examined.
Remember that he doubled in the 9th last night. So that’s 3 consecutive hits, two for XBH. Those XBH’s are more like the Byrnesie we know and love.
