Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
August 16, 2006: Columbus Clippers 3, Richmond Braves 1
Kris Wilson pitched a complete game last night, giving up only one run.
Bubba got things started early. Playing CF and batting in the two-hole, he hit a triple in his first at bat, then came home on a groundout by Aaron Guiel. Would have been an RBI triple, except Kevin Thompson got picked off 1B while Bubba was batting. KT is very speedy, but not a terribly good baserunner.
Bubba didn't have much success at the plate after that (lining out, then striking out swinging and looking). Still, can't really complain about a triple and a run scored.
Bubba is now leading the Clippers in slugging:
