Stat Line of the Night — 8/26/2013 — Chris Carter
Even the worst team in Major League Baseball has to win sometimes. That was exactly what happened last night at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, as the Houston Astros were victorious over the White Sox thanks to the bat of designated hitter Chris Carter.
Carter has put up some respectable power numbers this season, and he added to those totals last night with two homers and four RBIs in five plate appearances. He would also add a single, a walk and three runs, as his offensive outburst was a key factor in the Astros’ 10-8 victory.
Following that performance, Carter now has a career high 25 homers and 68 RBIs on the season, and he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, August 26, 2013.
