Could Julio Lugo be going any worse right now?
From a 3-0 count with two outs and runners on first and second (J.D. Drew was walked intentionally) to a swinging strikeout for Lugo’s 31st consecutive at bat without a hit. Not exactly what the team was looking for. After it was over, Lugo flipped his bat up the third base line, and dropped his helmet and batting gloves at the plate. He walked calmly (at least outwardly) into the infield.
