To say the least, the last couple of seasons have been tough for outfielder Matt Kemp. Ever since his dominant 2011 season, Kemp hasn’t been able to produce at a similar level. Injuries have kept him sidelined and has hindered him from finding any rhythm.
Coming into Wednesday’s game against the Colorado Rockies, Kemp was confident he is capable of returning to his old ways. Kemp began the night hitting .267 with seven home runs and 25 RBIs on the year.
Since filling in at left field for the injured Carl Crawford, Kemp seems to have found his groove. In his last 24 at-bats, he held a batting average of .424 while hitting a home run and 8 RBIs.
With his injuries behind him, Kemp believes he is on the right path. The team will be looking for Kemp to keep his up his production as they chase the San Francisco Giants for the division lead.
Kemp continued to impress in Wednesday night’s win by hitting two doubles and driving in two runs.
