Jarrett Parker found the solution to his hitting slump: Hanging out with Barry Bonds
Entering play on Wednesday night, Giants left fielder
So these two were hanging out pregame...🤔 pic.twitter.com/3PFcmEfsYC— SFGiants (@SFGiants) April 13, 2017
Yes, Parker and Barry Lamar Bonds were spotted hanging out during batting practice. And while we can't know for sure what the two discussed, what we do know is this: Just a little while later, Parker went 2-for-3 with a two-run triple as the Giants topped Arizona, 6-2.
Coincidence? Some innocuous hitting tips? Evidence of a Vulcan mind meld that will turn Parker into an unstoppable slugging machine? We're just asking questions here.
