Uribe went 3-for-5 on the night and finished a single short of the cycle. The 33-year-old had a two-run double in the second inning, a bases-clearing triple in the third inning, and a two-run homer in the seventh. He had one final chance at the cycle in the ninth inning, but struck out swinging against Jake Dunning. His seven RBI matched a career-high from June 19, 2004 as a member of the White Sox.
After compiling a lousy .199/.262/.289 batting line over the first two seasons of his three-year, $21 million deal with the Dodgers, Uribe is batting .280/.355/.455 with five home runs and 27 RBI through 187 plate appearances this season. Ned Colletti is vindicated.
