After a bit of a slump, Jedd Gyorko is starting to get back into the feel of things. Even though his San Diego Padres had a rough week, Gyorko personally saw his numbers start to come back up. Let's take a look at the Mountaineer slugger's week in review.
8/6: 0-3, 1 BB
8/7: 1-4, 1 Run, 1 HR, 3 RBI (His 3 RBI were the only runs the Padres scored)
8/10: 0-3, 1 BB
8/11: 1-1, 1 2B
8/12: 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI (His solo shot produced one of two runs scored all game)
For the week, Gyorko hit a collective 5-19 for a .263 AVG. Of those five hits, two were home runs. Those two home runs produced all 4 RBI that the rookie drove in this past week. He also made some news with his glove, robbing Joey Votto of a hit and making SportsCenter's Top 10 plays.
The Padres are currently at 53-65 and in 4th place in the NL West. Any hope of making the playoffs is nearly gone as the team is 15.0 games behind first place in their division. Gyorko, though, can still bolster his rookie campaign and make a run at NL Rookie of the Year before the season is over. He'll be back in action tonight as the Padres take on the Rockies.
