Haniger went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and three runs overall in a win over the Astros on Wednesday. Haniger was a thorn in the side of Astros pitching throughout the night, both by setting the table for those hitting behind him and by contributing a run himself with his 26th round tripper. The slugging outfielder has now reached safely in 11 straight games, pushing his September average to .309 and his second-half line to a stellar .303/.379/.509 (248 plate appearances).
Haniger went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Angels on Sunday. A day after smacking his second home run of September, Haniger served up his fifth consecutive two-hit effort as an encore. The hot-hitting outfielder has also driven in a run in four of the last five games, and nine of his 17 hits for the month have gone for extra bases (five doubles, two triples, two homers).
Haniger went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Saturday against the Angels. Haniger took Andrew Heaney deep in the fifth inning to record his 25th home run of the season. He has now recorded four consecutive multi-hit games, during which he has three RBI and five runs scored. Haniger has turned in an impressive sophomore campaign, hitting .280/.362/.491 across 550 at-bats.
Haniger went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Angels. Haniger was the beneficiary of a strong offensive performance from the Mariners, scoring on a home run by Nelson Cruz and a single by Robinson Cano. He has now hit safely in eight of his last 10 starts, smacking five extra-base hits in that span. The 2018 season marks Haniger's first full campaign, and he has proven his 2017 mini-breakout was no fluke by hitting .271/.361/.487 across 540 at-bats.
Haniger went 2-for-4 with a triple, a run and an RBI in Seattle's 5-4 loss to San Diego on Wednesday. Seattle's second-half struggles can't be blamed on Haniger, who now has a .276/.361/.485 slash line to go along with 24 home runs and 86 RBI following this latest multi-hit effort. After an injury-shortened campaign last year that saw him post an .843 OPS, the 27-year-old has shown he's capable of sustaining that production across a full season in 2018 with a nearly-identical .841 mark over 546 at-bats.
