B.J. Upton Pinch Hits In 8th, Legs Out Triple

Maybe he got the message?

B.J. Upton, who was benched tonight with thanks to his lollygagging on Sunday, didn’t just get a pinch hit tonight, but he stretched out a double into a triple with thanks to actual hustle.

It’s not clear if he will actually play with his mind on the game from now on. And his numbers reflect the fact he’s struggled. But for one at bat, we can see Upton for the star he was supposed to become.
