Donnie Baseball deserves another look from Hall of Fame voters. Between 1984-1987, Mattingly averaged 29 home runs and 120 RBIs per season. His on-base plus slugging during that stretch was .918, .939, .967 and .937.
Lucas Duda drove in 4 runs as the Mets defeated the Rockies 7-5 on Saturday night.
Eddie Murray and Chili Davis had shared the MLB record with Mark Teixeira by homering from both sides in the same game 11 total times. Make it 12 for Mark.
