Lefties vs. Lefties

The highest batting average against left-handed pitcher by a left-handed hitter (min. 75 plate appearances) is...

.367 - Denard Span (Minnesota Twins)

Following him:

2. Scott Posnesnik (White Sox) - .365

3. Ichiro Suzuki (Mariners) - .364

7. Justin Morneau (Twins) - .331

9, Bobby Abreu (Angels) - .323

He is only hitting .354 against righties, which explains his decent .285 average. In 2008, he hit .283 against lefties and .299 against righties. It's probably a good sign for him, because a lot of left-handed hitters have trouble hitting lefties.
