Unbelievable Owings

Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Micah Owings put together one of the most dominant NL pitcher performances of modern times. Yes, this is the same young pitcher Bronx Liaison considered the best possible piece of the rumored Randy Johnson deal. I also alluded to his ability with the stick:
The article also speaks of his natural athletic ability as [Owings] can still rake: batting .355 with 18homers and 63rbi with the Green Wave last year.
Owings pitched 6.1 innings of shutout ball, striking out four, walking zero and allowing only four hits. Although very impressive amidst a pressure-packed pennant race, the pitching aspect was just a small portion of Micah's night.

The 6-foot-5 Georgia product brought a .291 batting average into last night's action. With exception to a broken bat single to left, Owings would become an extra base machine. He went on to collect three more hits, all doubles, and post a 4-for-4 night. He knocked in three runs and raised his season average to an unbelievable .339.
