Baltimore Orioles outfielder David Lough was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 11th round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. Lough made his Major League debut with the Orioles and displayed not only amazing defense, but he wasn’t all that bad in the batters box.
The young outfielder became only the fifth Royals in franchise history to pick up four extra base hits in a game. Lough is in good company when it comes to this statistic, as he joined George Brett, Hal McRae, Johnny Damon and Lonnie Smith. The 28 year old lefty would be traded during the off-season to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for third baseman Danny Valencia.
Now Lough got the chance to get some revenge on the team that traded him away for another player. I know it’s a business, but there’s always a part of someone who wants to show up the team that gave up on them. But at least the Orioles wanted Lough in return.
The former Kansas City Royal made a beautiful catch during the eighth inning against his former team.
