Brandon Inge: RBI machine
Brandon Inge is the first player since Lou Gehrig to have four four-plus RBI games in a five-game stretch.
Thursday night, he was a grand slam machine, but it's now Friday night. And A's third baseman Brandon Inge is an RBI machine. Why? Because he had four RBI against the Tigers -- the team that cut him a few weeks ago -- meaning he's now had four RBI or more four times in the last five games.
And that puts him in pretty good company. Check it out:
