"Shortstop J.J. Hardy is often overlooked with his home run production down this season, but he's hitting .436 (17-for-39) with three home runs, nine RBIs and nine runs scored over his last 10 games. He's got six multi-hit games during that stretch.

Nick Markakis is batting .415 (17-for-41) during his 10-game hitting streak, and .400 (24-for-60) this month after hitting .231 in July.

He can still flash the leather, too. And slam into the padding.

Nelson Cruz has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, going 11-for-38 (.290). He now leads the American League with 32 home runs."

We face another very good pitcher tonight but we do have some numbers against him...

 

Steve Pearce 2 for 3 with 1 home run

Adam Jones 5 for 9 with 2 home runs

Delmon Young 3 for 7

JJ Hardy 3 for 11 with 1 home run

Cruz and Lough both 2 for 9 and each has a home run against Quintana who is...

 

Is 3-2 with a 2.15 ERA (17 ER/71.0 IP), 67 strikeouts and a .218 op-
ponents average (56-257) over his last 11 starts since 6/19 (7 QS).

Has allowed two runs or less nine times during that span.
Ranks among the American League leaders since 6/19 in HR/9.0 IP (5th, 0.38), ERA (7th), opponents slugging percentage (7th, .300), strikeouts (9th) and opponents average (11th).

He's five for his last 10 with a home run two doubles and two RBIs.

 

Yes, that qualifies as hot.

Especially when his curveball isn't working/breaking.  He's a bit more bearable to watch when it is.

He's just really mediocre.

Oh man Buck's comments about Manny earlier did not sound very encouraging.

This team really cranks out the three-up, three-downs.

 

I wish I could find stats on that.
