Hundley went 3-for-4 with a home run, double, two RBI and walk during a 7-2 victory against the Indians on Wednesday. This was Hundley's first three-hit game of the season, and considering he came into the night with only three hits during the entire month of May, this performance arrives as a big surprise. Granted, Hundley has only received 17 at-bats this month, but that may increase since he's 4-for-7 with two home runs in his last three games. Hundley is batting .237 with six extra-base hits, five RBI and five runs in 59 at-bats this season.
Hundley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a win over the Tigers on Saturday. The veteran backstop parlayed one of his relatively rare starting opportunities into a productive showing, blasting his first round tripper of the season in the process. Hundley got his average to the Mendoza Line for the first time this season with Saturday's production, and he's now hit safely in three of four starts this month. Moreover, all three of his May hits thus far have gone for extra bases, with Hundley notching a double, a triple and the aforementioned homer.
Hundley went 1-for-3 with a triple and a run in a win over the Indians on Saturday. The veteran backstop made good use of a relatively rare playing opportunity, lacing his first three-bagger of the season in the fifth and ultimately scoring on the play due to a throwing error by Jake Bauers. Hundley has logged only 54 plate appearances all season and has just one RBI, as Josh Phegley's productive bat has kept the latter on the heavy side of the platoon behind the dish. Factoring in Saturday's production, Hundley is hitting .192 on the season, although he's now hit safely in four of his last five starts.
Hundley went 2-for-3 with a run and was caught stealing on his only attempt in a win over the Rangers on Wednesday. Hundley had been having a rough go of it with the bat prior to Wednesday, but his first multi-hit effort of 2018 served to boost his average 25 points to .171. The veteran catcher is still lagging considerably behind platoon mate Josh Phegley in terms of offensive production, which makes it likely he'll continue seeing significantly less playing time than the latter for the time being.
Hundley is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. On the bench for the fourth time in five games, Hundley appears to have slipped to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart at catcher behind the hot-hitting Josh Phegley, who has recorded two home runs and two doubles over his past four starts. Hundley, meanwhile, is slashing an anemic .115/.148/.115 through 27 plate appearances and has yet to score a run this season. Expect manager Bob Melvin to ride Phegley's sizzling bat for as long as it lasts.
