Hosmer went 3-for-5 with two runs and two RBI in an 11-6 win over the Braves on Friday. The veteran first baseman knocked in a pair of runs with a fifth-inning single, and he scored in each of the seventh and ninth innings. This was the second straight three-hit game and third consecutive multi-hit performance for Hosmer, who has gone 8-for-14 with a homer and five RBI during the hot stretch. He leads the league with a .377 average on the season, just ahead of teammate Manny Machado's .371 mark.

The long ball was Hosmer's fourth of the season and first since April 30. The first baseman also put together his second straight multi-hit effort and his season slash line now sits at .367/.434/.550, with all three figures career bests. In what has been a resurgent season for Hosmer, he has four homers, 21 RBI and 13 runs over 109 at-bats in 30 games.

Hosmer leads MLB with a .378 average and .457 on-base percentage this season.
Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Pirates. The Padres were held scoreless through three innings before Hosmer delivered a three-run shot in the fourth to give his team a brief lead. The long ball was his third in the past five games after he failed to go deep through his first 15 contests of the campaign. The power surge has added value to an already impressive season for Hosmer -- he leads MLB with a .389 average and is tied for third with 28 hits.

Hosmer has now homered in consecutive contests and produced multiple hits in five of his last seven games. He has an eye-popping .410/.463/.607 slash on the season with eight extra-base hits and 10 RBI in 61 at-bats.
