9/6 Byrd is the word

Marlon Byrd hit his 12th homer of the season in the third inning, and his first since Aug. 11. So far, 27 of his 60 RBIs have come with two outs. Byrd is batting .374 against lefties this year with five homers, 14 doubles and 23 RBIs. That average is tops in the National League and third in the Majors. In his last six games against lefties, he’s 8-for-18 with five RBIs.
