Uribe drove in an insurance run that proved to be essential in the ninth inning of Thursday's 3-2 win in New York against the Mets, and he also walked three times. The single snapped an 0-for-27 slump by Dodgers third baseman that dated back to Apr. 16. Uribe got the last hit as well.
It has been a bizarre April for Uribe, who is hitting just .190 but is tied for the team lead with two home runs and has eight walks in 29 plate appearances. Uribe's on-base percentage is .414 and his slugging percentage is .490.
Friday marks the sixth consecutive game not started by Luis Cruz, who is hitting just .087/.122/.087 (4-for-46) this season.
