Reds' Drew Stubbs busts out of 1-for-37 slump

Aug 7, 2010, 8:44 PM EST

Reds outfielder Drew Stubbs broke out of a massive 1-for-37 slump on Saturday to lead the Reds past the Cubs.  He finished with a single, a double and a home run, collecting two RBI and scoring two runs of his own in the 4-3 victory at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.

Stubbs, 25, got off to a rough start this season with a .572 OPS over 70 April at-bats.  But a strong May and a few bursts of power in June and July put him at 11 home runs and 43 RBI at the All-Star break.  Not bad for a rookie known mostly for his speed, and now he’s looking to finish the season strong.

The Reds boast a one-game lead in the National League Central over the heavily-favored Cardinals, who are just about to get underway against the Marlins.  It’s going to be a fun final few months.

    nice! but why would you not have sat him down before now? I mean after he struck out 20 times in a row wouldn’t most people think that might be a good idea?everybody but the tooth pick would have.and surprise surprise after a couple days off he breaks out. this and cordero are are driving reds fans nuts! I am happy they are in first and ahead of st. larussa and the cards but they are winning in spite of dusty not because of him.

    I’ve had stretches like that. A little Swiss Criss would have helped out long before this.

    Drew Stubbs isn’t a rookie this year. Too many ABs last year.
