Mike Cameron, who took a 3-for-41 slump into the late frames of Tuesday’s 7-5 Brewers win, had been buried in the worst slump of his (what I estimate to be) 62-year career. Between sucking at the plate and being benched for sucking at the plate, Cameron went missing for pretty much all of last week and the beginning of this week, too.
But alas, he’s found his swing and his name can again be seen with whole numbers in the hit column of a box score. Cameron finally halted his bad streak when he clubbed a RBI triple in the top of the eighth. He added a single in the ninth.
Welcome back, Cameron. We’ve missed you.
