On a roll

August 15, 2006:

Columbus Clippers 8, Richmond Braves 2
Columbus Clippers 2, Richmond Braves 1

Great night for the Clippers and for Bubba. He ended up #3 on the "Top Performances at the Plate" list today!

In the first game, he drew first blood, bringing in the first run with a line drive up the middle. In the end, Bubba was 2 for 4 with a double, two RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base.

Bubba scored the last and winning run in the second game, which was much closer. He singled, stole 2B, then came home on an error by the third baseman.

Bubba's numbers for Columbus thus far:

.320 .393 .520 .913

Not bad, kid!

I'm especially encouraged by the pattern. His first game for the Clippers, he struck out three times. Then he walked twice. After that, he really started to heat up. I always felt he would find his swing if given a chance to play regularly.

The Clippers play again at 7pm tonight. I was half-expecting Bubba to be rested today, just because he played two games yesterday, but he's in the lineup again. He is starting in CF tonight, batting in the two-hole.

Follow the game online here. Go, Bubba!
