Batting Ninth

Starting Second Baseman

1991 Donruss
No. 309 Mariano Duncan

Mr. Duncan had some pop and speed. How else do you explain leading the National League in triples for the 1990 season? His steady hands in the field in 1990 were the second half of a potent double play combo with Barry Larkin. Batting ninth in this game was a great plus. His speed on the bases for the big hitters to drive in. But for some reason he was rarely on base. Only 2 hits and no walks in the 4 games. One run scored. The A's pitchers owned him.
