Watch your back, Francoeur.
On June 6 Alcides Escobar had a .203 batting average. Our beloved Jeff Francoeur was hitting .270 that day, fresh off of an 0-5 that had dropped him from .276. First impressions can last a long time, and Francoeur spent much of April hitting over .300, while Escobar spent much of April and May near .200. June 6 was Escobar's low point however.
Following tonight's game, here are their batting averages:
- Jeff Francoeur: .263
- Alcides Escobar: .252
Escobar's climb from .203 to .252 is impressive however, since he had two months of ABs feeding that .203.
