We’ve mentioned Akron’s Matt McBride here a couple times, first when he saved Jeanmar Gomez’s perfect game with a terrific catch in the outfield and later when a story came along regarding his struggle to find a defensive position.
Akron beat Binghamton 16-3 on Friday, scoring in every inning but the second, and McBride was at the head of the charge. The leftfielder from Bethlehem, PA went 3-4 with two homeruns and eight runs batted in to beat the Mets.
How did those RBIs add up? Here’s the at-bat by at-bat look at a pretty good day for McBride:
1st – sacrifice fly
2nd – 3-run homerun
3rd – popout
4th – double
5th – 3-run homerun
6th – sacrifice fly
