The SF Giants have been demoralized in late inning losses lately, leaving them 2 Games back in the NL Wild Card. Back in the friendly surroundings of AT&T Park they finally put their offense in gear and thumped the Padres 9-4. Juan Uribe provided the thump by blasting 2 HRs and a triple. He scored 3 times and drove in 5 RBIs on the day. Juan has been smoking hot lately, homering in 7 of his last 19 games and batting .323 (20-for-62) in that stretch.

Honorable Mention; Derrek Lee (He did it again!), Ian Stewart, Ronnie Belliard, Joe Mauer, Billy Butler, Mark Teixeira…
Having missed the last two games while his wife gave birth to his second child, Derrek Lee was anxious to get to the ballpark and celebrate. Did he ever! Derrek had a big hit day in New York as the Cubs beat the NY Mets 5-3. Lee smashed two very long, very high bombs into the upper decks in a ballpark that isn’t very Homer Friendly. Speaking of HR’s, Derrek’s 6yr old daughter, Jada, is constantly requesting her big Papa to hit HR’s for her. Says Derrek “Man, now I’ve got to hit a Home Run for you AND Dylan. It’s going to be tough!” Well, he came through with flying colors in his first attempt at keeping his babies happy. What a great memory for him and a heckuva welcome to his new son! Here’s to you Dylan Lee! Watch his bombs Here!
