|Friday, April 26th, 2030: Rosario Socks It to Dodgers, Cracks 5 Hits |
Who needs batting practice? Amed Rosario of San Francisco apparently doesn't as he peppered Los Angeles with a 5-hit outburst in today's game. He got the hits, but lost the game. The Dodgers pulled out a 14-13 win.
He told the press after the game, "And I didn't even take BP today. I think I have been taking too many swings before game and decided to take a day off. Wow, this was really something... a 5 for 5 day... will my name be in the record books now?"
One of his teammates hollered out, "No, only if your team wins the game!"
A. Rosario singled in the 1st, flied out in the 2nd, hit an RBI double in the 3rd, hit an RBI single in the 5th, doubled in the 7th and hit a solo-shot off A. García in the 9th.
A look at his 2030 stats shows Rosario with a .429 average, 6 home runs, 30 RBIs and 18 runs scored. He has played in 22 games.
