NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — SEPTEMBER 22, 2006
From the “September 16 Plus” Newberg Report:
“Michael [Young’s] 200th hit of 2006 drove in his 94th run of the season, five short of a career best. Chances are he’ll knock in number 100 three doubles from now, when he collects two-bagger number 51 for the year, breaking Juan Gonzalez’s franchise record.”
Setting up pretty well. Young has doubled twice since then to give him a franchise-record-tying 50, and he drove in four runs tonight, raising his RBI total to a career-best-equaling 99.
Double number 51 comes off of Brian Slocum tomorrow, driving in Gary Matthews for RBI number 100.
