Suarez went 2-for-4 at the plate, including a home run, and drove in a run. While his overall season numbers haven't been overly impressive, with a batting average of .234 and 19 home runs, Suarez has been a consistent contributor throughout the year. With 141 games played, he has shown durability and has been a reliable source of RBIs with 84 on the season.
