Though Gregory Polanco has stolen most of the thunder this season in Indianapolis, Andrew Lambo has been almost equally as impressive.
Polanco had a 10-game hit streak earlier in the season and has been the talk of the town with visits from ESPN, Sports Illustrated and Yahoo. This attention fails in comparison to the excitement and the buzz that Polanco’s future promotion to Pittsburgh has caused with fans and the media. Plus Polanco’s numbers do not lie. He is hitting .398 with 13 extra base hits in 25 games.
However, lost in this mix may be Lambo, who is equally as impressive. Lambo is hitting .354 with 11 doubles. He is also making a case to earn a call up prior to Polanco. One of the aspects that seemed to have been missing from Lambo’s arsenal was the long ball. However, Lambo has knocked in a pair of home runs this week — his first since September.
