Settling the Score: Friday’s results

24 Comments

Josh Hamilton might be the hottest hitter on the planet right now, but Brandon Inge is a pretty close second.

Inge went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI last night as the Athletics topped the Tigers 11-4. It was Inge’s second straight night with a home run against his former team and the fourth game in his last five where he homered and drove in four runs. The 34-year-old third baseman had three home runs all of last season.

The most ridiculous part of it all? Inge is the first player to have four games with four RBI or more in five-game span since Lou Gehrig in 1931. Inge and Gehrig, forever linked in history. Baseball, I love you, but you’re crazy.
