Indians' Ryan Raburn is all kinds of hot right now
In his last three games, Indians outfielder Ryan Raburn is 11-13 with four homers and nine RBI.
Talk about being in a zone.
Monday against the Royals, Raburn went 4 for 4 with two homers and four RBI.
Tuesday against the Phillies, Raburn went 3 for 4 with two homers and three RBI.
Wednesday against the Phillies, Raburn went 4 for 5 with a double and two RBI.
So Raburn is hitting .846/.846/1.846(!) with four homers, two doubles and nine RBI in his past 13 at-bats. Here's the best part: Raburn entered this three-game stretch hitting .214/.283/.286 with zero homers and one RBI in 46 plate appearances this season. Not only that, Raburn hit .171/.226/.254 with one homer and 12 RBI in 222 plate appearances last season for the Tigers.
He's been good in the past, 2009-10 to be specific, but this is still quite the extraordinary three-game stretch. Even if this were Mark Reynolds or Carlos Santana, it would be worth mention. But it's Ryan Raburn.
You just can't predict this great game.
