Darryl Strawberry continued his comeback from a drug suspension with two hits and three RBI in a Class AAA doubleheader Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
Strawberry went 2 for 3 in the opener and 0 for 1 in the nightcap, sitting out most of the International League game after a 30-minute rain delay in the second inning.
In the opener, Strawberry doubled in the second inning and singled in the fifth to drive in two runs in the Columbus Clippers' 7-4 victory over Charlotte.
Strawberry, who batted fourth and played left field in the first game, also struck out looking in the third. He is batting .375 (6 for 16) in five games with Columbus.
His only at-bat in the second game was a groundout that drove in a run. Charlotte beat Columbus, 4-1.
