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-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.
Haniger went 0-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Two of Haniger's three outs Sunday came on strikeouts, but he came through in the most important part of the game. The slugging leadoff hitter drew a leadoff walk off Delin Betances to open the eighth and subsequently stole second, allowing him to advance to third on Jean Segura's sacrifice. That put Haniger in position to cross the plate on Robinson Cano's fielder's choice, which eventually proved to be the winning run. Haniger has reached safely in seven of eight September games thus far, although a 6-for-31 tally overall has led to a .194 average following a .345 figure in August.
Haniger went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Athletics.
Haniger took Frankie Montas deep in the fourth inning to record his 23rd home run of the season. The effort extended his hitting streak to 11 games and continued his strong effort through August. For the month, he has five home runs, 15 RBI and 19 runs scored with a .400 on-base percentage across 114 at-bats. After battling injuries throughout the 2017 season, Haniger has fully broken out and has a chance to post a 30 home run and 100 RBI campaign.
Haniger went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
Haniger took Robbie Ray deep in the first inning for his 22nd home run of the season. He has now homered in three consecutive games and fully rebounded from struggles throughout July. His ability to stay healthy has helped him earn career-best marks in most counting stats, though his .280/.368/.485 slash line remains comparable to his breakout 2017 season.
