Semien once again served as a catalyst out of the leadoff spot, churning out his first multi-hit effort since June 19 in the process. The veteran shortstop is hitting .299 overall in June, a resurgent month following a middling May during which he hit a forgettable .206. Semien has also compiled 16 RBI since the calendar flipped, easily his best monthly figure in that category this season.
Semien went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.
