Ozuna went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the Cardinals' 5-0 victory over the Dodgers on Sunday. Ozuna continued his red-hot hitting of recent weeks, as he's now left the yard six times in his last 12 contests. His second-half tear has pushed his stat line up to a respectable level after his prolonged struggles in the first half of the season, as Ozuna now has a .281/.322/.438 slash line to go along with 22 home runs and 81 RBI over 541 at-bats.
Ozuna went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Dodgers. Ozuna hit his 15th double of the season, but his RBI came on a groundout and single. He's been on a productive stretch in the final month of the season, driving in 13 in his last nine games. A power surge since the All-Star break has salvaged Ozuna's season, as he's slugging .667 across the last 30 days.
Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Pirates. Ozuna hit a two-run double -- his 14th two-bagger of the year -- in the first inning and later hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning as the Cardinals routed the Pirates 11-5. Ozuna has recorded a hit in seven consecutive games and is hitting .333 with seven home runs and 15 RBI over his last 15 games. On the season the 27-year-old is slashing .280/.321/.435 with 21 home runs, 79 RBI and 61 runs scored.
Ozuna went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs in a win over the Pirates on Monday. The 27-year-old continues to wield a red-hot bat, with Monday's production extending his hitting streak to six games. He's generated a quartet of multi-hit efforts over that span, leading to a .353 average over his first eight games of September overall. The rest that Ozuna's inflamed right shoulder received over his recent stint on the disabled list seems to have worked wonders, considering he's already smacked five home runs since returning.
Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers. His two-run shot off Shane Greene in the top of the ninth inning tied the game at 3-3, only for Bud Norris to hand the game right back to Detroit with a walkoff wild pitch in the bottom half of the frame. Ozuna now has 21 homers on the year, five of which have come in the last four games.
