Buxton went 3-for-5 with two solo home runs in Wednesday's 12-2 blowout win over the Brewers. Buxton's homered in the fifth and sixth innings, giving him five homers in his last seven games. The outfielder has back-to-back three-hit games as well, raising his batting average from .211 to .298 with the recent surge. Buxton has five homers, 10 RBI, nine runs scored and a stolen base in 15 contests this season.
Buxton went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Brewers. The center fielder swiped his first bag of the year in the second inning after beating out an infield single. Buxton has been on a roll at the plate during one of his rare healthy periods, hitting .370 (10-for-27) over the last eight games with three homers, seven RBI, six runs and Tuesday's steal.
Buxton went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Royals. That's now back-to-back games with a homer for Buxton, and three straight games with an extra-base hit after he went seven games without one to begin the season. Buxton only has one (unsuccessful) steal attempt so far, but his sprint speed remains elite and the stolen bases will come if Buxton can just stay on the field.
Buxton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Pirates. Buxton only had one hit in the contest, but made it count by slugging his first home run of the season in the fourth inning. After a slow start due to a foot injury and poor performance, Buxton has slowly showed signs of life at the plate and now has at least one hit in three consecutive contests. Despite that, he has an ugly .174/.200/.348 line across his first 25 plate appearances.
Buxton is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates. Buxton has struggled at the plate so far this season, grabbing just two hits in 18 at-bats. Jake Cave will serve as the center fielder in his absence.
