Righty Owings notches Silver Slugger
By Steve Gilbert / MLB.com
PHOENIX — Micah Owings had his share of success on the mound in 2007, but his work with the bat received the most attention.
That’s what happens when a pitcher smacks two home runs in a game
during one start and ties a franchise record with three doubles in
Congrats, Micah! As several of your teammates have said, having you at the plate is like having a DH. It’s great knowing you don’t have to be taken out of a great mound outing in the 6th or 7th inning just because the D’Backs need a run.
Maybe you ought to give Byrnesie some hints.
He’s never had a 6-RBI day.
CORRECTION: I’ve been told that Byrnesie has had a 6-RBI day: July 4, 2004 vs the Giants. But just that one. No one is ever going to confuse him with Albert Pujols over that! So, Micah, I still think you ought to give Byrnesie some hints. He seems to have forgotten something!
