I was really wondering who the right guy would be for today. Was it Nick Swisher (2-3, 2RBI) who homered from both sides of the plate and hit the Walk Off sneaker into the right field bleachers?
Nawww.. He got a pie in the eye.
Or, maybe Chase Headley (3-4, 2 RBI) who damaged the Giants with a big HR and a late inning go ahead single?
Nope, couldn’t quite pull the trigger on that one.
How about Raul Ibanez (3-4, 2RBI) or Matt Holliday (2-4, 2RBI) and hit a big HR in the 9th?
Nawww… Oh, I know! Let’s go with Dustin Pedroia. Dustin was Dusted back with a pitch:
Then got off the deck and belted 2 big HRS in a Red Sox romp.
Pretty meaningful because they were trying to stay in front of the hard charging Rangers in the Wild Card.
Which brings us to THE choice!
Marlon Byrd! (7-9, 3RBI)
The Texas Rangers kept blowing chances to inch up the Wild Card standings while in Baltimore. It turns out that Cleveland was the place to rock! The Rangers won a slugfest in Game 1 and then double dipped in Game 2 to close in the AL Wild Card race. Marlon Byrd was awesome. He was a perfect 4 for 4 in Game 1 and tallied three more hits in the nightcap for a big day at the dish. Watch his game Here!
