The Stat Line of the Night – 8/12/10 – Pat Burrell
The rumors of the expiration of Pat “The Bat” Burrell’s days as a big league power hitter must have not got back to him. Burrell has dialed it back to his glory years recently and is helping the Giants make a push to win the NL West.
The Giants were playing the Cubs in San Francisco, but for the Cubs it might as well been called the woodshed. Because the G-Men took them out back and gave them a serious whooping. And Burrell was leading the charge.
Last night Burrell jacked 2 homers and drove in 5 runs. This comes after hitting a homer and driving in 3 the night before. The Giants won it 8-7 and took 3 of 4 from the Cubs. They currently sit 2.5 games back of the surprising Padres in the NL West. But if Pat the Bat keeps this up, it will be the Giants leading the division before long. Pat Burrell has The Stat Line of the Night for 8/12/10.
