Kingery homered twice in six at-bats Friday for Double-A Reading.

They were Kingery's only two hits of the night, but he made them count. The 23-year-old is now slashing .280/.358/.622 with 11 home runs and nine stolen bases in 143 at-bats for Reading. In addition to the power outburst, Kingery has upped his walk rate to 9.5 percent this season while cutting his strikeout rate to 18.4 percent from 21.7 percent last year after he moved to Double-A. He should get a promotion to Triple-A Lehigh Valley this summer if he keeps producing.
