Thunder Matt busts out the Quad-Pow

Any doubts on whether Thunder Matt reads our stuff were quashed yesterday. Just a day after I spoke about his lack of extra base hits, Murton busted off 4 doubles and 5 RBI's in game 2 of the doubleheader against Arizona. He's the first Cub to hit 4 doubles in a game since Billy Williams back in 1969.

Lets look at the stats real quick. Murton is now batting .294 and since the All Star Break he's hit a robust .395. I think its about time Thunder Matt officially regained the full-time starting role at LF and Angel Pagan stays on the bench.
