Everything is coming up Jay Bruce right now. Look at a couple of these ugly finders that counted for knocks today!
Granted, Stan the Man probably didn’t hit this many weak squibbers in his entire career; Bruce went into St. Louis in the Cardinals home opener and posted the sixth four-hit game of his career. He gets about one of these per season, so enjoy the following video montage:
The Reds went into St. Louis–a place that usually serves as a house of horrors–and embarassed the Cardinals in their home opener on a day that their greatest player ever was being honored. When you paste a team 13-4 and score nine runs in the top of the ninth inning to seal it, you’re a group that’s intent on proving a point. Or just really good.
Bruce is now over .300 on the season (.324). Still with a goose egg in the homer department while Justin Upton has um, six; but we will sign up right now for Bruce hitting only 20 homers if he can find a way to hit .300 on the year.
I’m glad that with Mitchell Boggs’ help, the Reds were able to dedicate the day to Stan the Man accordingly.
