Owings honored again

Micah Owings' dream lives on.

The former Tulane standout, who was a mainstay in the Arizona Diamondbacks rotation for much of the season, won his first Silver Slugger Award on Friday.

Owings hit .333 with four home runs and 15 RBIs this season, beating out defending champ Carlos Zambrano for the award.

Owings had a multi-home run game and also notched three doubles in a game this season.

Teammate Eric Byrnes called Owings' ability "a joke." Byrnes meant it as a compliment, saying Owings takes batting practice twice a week and "still rakes major league pitching."
