Villanueva went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, a walk and a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Villanueva had cooled off a bit following his three-homer game two weeks ago, but he's heating up again now to the tune of a 5-for-8, two-homer, five-RBI, four-walk stretch over the last three games. The 26-year-old still only has 25 games of major league experience under his belt, but he's now hitting .293 and will keep getting chances to be a solid run producer hitting firmly in the middle of the lineup, more commonly occupying that role against left-handed pitching.
