Saturday night Dusty Baker sent pitcher Micah Owings to the plate to pinch hit. The bases were loaded. Two were out.
Owings delivered a two-run single. The Reds never trailed thereafter.
We believe that makes him two for two as a Red, in both cases delivering the go-ahead-to-stay RBI.
We offer to personally purchase a first-baseman's glove for Owings, if it helps for next year. He'll need something to do on the days he doesn't pitch.
We also note that with this hit, Owings clinched a playoff berth for the Chicago Cubs. Perhaps this is the Cubs' year, a century since their last one.
