Lucas Duda is starting a family feud: Has hit three home runs against the Ross brothers this week
Duda hits three HRs against Ross brothers this week
Lucas Duda has been having quite the week. Since July 25, covering a total of seven games, Duda has gone deep eight times, with three multi-home run games coming in that span.
But Duda has reserved most of his home runs for his war against the Ross family. Though we don't know what led him to seeking his revenge against the brothers Tyson and Joe, creating a Hatfield versus McCoys type rivalry, all we know is that he's been plenty successful.
Against the Padres on July 29, Duda homered three times, his first coming off of Tyson Ross.
Three days later, Duda did it again -- this time against Ross' brother, Joe. Only this time, he did it twice in the Mets' 3-2 win against the Nationals on Saturday.
That's three home runs against two brothers this week. Hopefully that means we'll soon see this film made:
Maybe it's a Ross thing in general, though. Counting Duda's career performance against the brothers, along with Ross Detwiler and Zac Rosscup, Duda is 6-for-12 with 3 HR and 2 walks.
