Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Smacks seventh homer Thursday

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's loss to Pittsburgh.

The second baseman is turning in another excellent season with a .320/.385/.542 slash line, and Murphy boasts a high-floor, high-ceiling combo because of his placement in the heart of a clicking lineup. His days of posting double-digit stolen bases are in the rearview mirror, but with seven home runs, 31 RBI and 26 runs, his production in the other four stat columns is better than ever.
