Jedd Gyorko Newsbeat

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Gyorko continues his surge to aid Weaver’s win | Cardinal Beat | stltoday.com

22 homers in 316 PA.

“When you’re out there trying to get your first win and you get a couple of runs early, it maybe settles you down a little,” Gyorko said. “And he definitely got in a groove and was pounding the strike zone. I got a pitch I was kind of looking for. I was looking for that changeup and I put a good swing on it.”

After wrapping up the previous night’s loss with a solo homer in the ninth inning, Gyorko put a jolt into his 22nd of the season, driving it 423 feet onto the grass in center.

It left him one short of his career high of 23 homers, which he hit during his rookie season in 2013 in San Diego. Those came in 486 at-bats. Gyorko’s 22 this season have come in 289 at-bats and he is now a regular in the lineup, the only question being which infield spot he’ll occupy.
