The AZL Padres are sporting an impressive record, and Robert Lara has a lot to do with it. I just purchased some new Under Armour batting gloves for Lara yesterday (he has busted through two pairs already this season). As long as he continues to tear up the ball, I have no problem supplying the equipment. Here is a snippet from Denis Savage of Scout.com in a piece he wrote this weekend:
AZL Padres (16-6) won 8-2 over AZL Brewers
Robert Lara had two hits, including his 11th double, scored a run and drove in two for the AZL Padres. Lara had been in a 10-for-45 slump but still sported a .435 on-base percentage over his last 15 games prior to Saturday thanks to 13 walks. He has been on base in all but three of the 44 games he has notched a plate appearance.
