Here’s a look at the unheralded players who played well yesterday.


Delwyn Young, Pittsburgh Pirates
Delwyn went three for five with a run and two RBI to raise his average to .246.


Orlando Cabrera, Cincinnati Reds
Cabrera went three for three with a run, an RBI, and a SB. He’s hitting .281 with 21 RBIs and six SB.


Drew Stubbs, Cincinnati Reds
Stubbs went three for four with a HR (five) and two RBI. Despite hitting just .218 he seems to contribute in every other category.


Mark Teahan, Chicago White Sox
Teahan went three for four with three RBI. He’s hitting just .248 with a .364 slugging percentage. Look away. Nothing to see here.
