Pirela went 3-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Pirela was bumped up to the leadoff spot prior to Saturday's game and remained there Sunday -- even against a righty -- and he's since logged five hits, four RBI, four runs and a steal over the two tilts. It remains to be seen if he'll be a fixture at the top of the lineup going forward, but either way the 28-year-old has acquitted himself well this year and now sports an impressive .324/.351/.473 slash line.
