On his birthday Friday, Andruw Jones belted a pair of homers, and stole a base.
The now White Sox slugger went 2-for-4 and is hitting .293 this season. The home runs were Nos. five and six.
There were plenty of other noteworthy performances from Friday — including two other two-homer showings. Here are nine of those performances:
Adam Dunn — Belting a pair of homers and drive in a third run, Dunn went 2-for-3. That last stat is particularly notable because he’s hitting .203
Adrian Gonzalez — One of his two hits was a grand slam. He’s hitting .327. He is good. You knew that.
Kelly Johnson — Belted a pair of homers, both solo shots batting leadoff for the Diamondbacks. He went 2-for-4 in the game. Johnson is hitting .327 with five homers, 12 runs and eight RBI in 2010.
Jose Lopez — He’s only hitting .235 and Lopez had only one hit Friday but made it count. He slugged a grand slam in the seventh inning.
Kendry Morales — Went 3-for-3 against the Yankees. Morales homered, drove in three runs and scored two.
Tim Lincecum — Struck out eight in seven innings on Friday. Lincecum walked three and scattered six hits but allowed only one earned run. he’s got a 1.00 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.
Jon Lester — Striking out seven in 5.2 innings of shutout ball, Lester took a no-decision in a game the Red Sox eventually won. Lester allowed four hits and walked four.
Kosuke Fukudome — Belted a solo homer and walked in a 2-for-4 day. He scored another run and drove in another. He’s hitting .311 and hit out of the No. 2 spot for the Cubs on Friday.
Luis Altilano — He walked more than he struck out (2-to-1) and allowed five hits, but Altilano allowed just one run in six innings to earn his first career win for the Washington Nationals. Let’s see what else the 25-year-old has to offer before we go rostering him.
