Upton tripled in the second, hit a solo homer in the fourth, and then doubled in the seventh. He received just one more at-bat in the contest, grounding out to second against closer Matt Capps to end the game. The homer, which was a deep drive to left off starter Tom Gorzelanny, was his first in the major leagues. Upton is 19-years-old and has been in the majors less than a week yet has already almost hit for the cycle. He's got a decent little future ahead of himself. Aug. 8 - 1:22 am et
SO why not bring up Bruce?? lets see what his future holds... might as well, nothing but the JR 600 watch to look forward too!!
Because we're not in a pennant race and he's not going to be as good as Upton, though others differ. But, he hasn't hit as well as Upton has this year. But, the way Bruce is playing, he'd probably hit well whenever he is brought up.
