Congrats to Darin Ruf on his franchise-tying 37th HR of the year. We can argue about what to make of his future, (we don’t have to, but I’m sure we will…again), he’s been absolutely crushing it the last month+. Asche, Joseph and Gillies all had 3 hits in that game, Gillies and Joseph each with a HR.
Elsewhere, Maikel Franco was 4-4 plus a BB and drove in a run. What a second half that guy’s had. He was OPSing .607 at their all-star break, after – .910. And 6 Ks in 4 IP from Kevin Brady for WIL. 2BB also, bringing his NYPL total to 5. Versus 44K. In 34 innings.
