Benintendi went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and three RBI in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Athletics.
Both of Benintendi's doubles came off starter Daniel Gossett, with the second chasing the rookie from the game while driving in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning. He also hit a two-run single in the seventh and notched a pair of outfield assists on defense, making up for an earlier error. Benintendi's hot hitting in the second half has his season line up to .280/.360/.443.
Benintendi is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.
Benintendi has put together a healthy .305/.389/.504 line with seven homers and nine stolen bases since the beginning of August, but he'll head to the bench for a breather after starting 35 straight contests. Chris Young is batting second and starting in left field in his stead.
Benintendi went 3-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 9-0 win over the Rays.
Benintendi continues a surge that began immediately following a three-game break at the end of July and the beginning of August. Since then, he's hit .307 with seven home runs and 25 RBI over 34 games. The rookie has knocked in 79 runs, second on the team behind Mookie Betts and has overcome a couple of significant slumps this season.
Benintendi went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.
The multi-hit performance was his fourth in the last five games, while the homer was his 19th of the season as he hovers on the brink of a 20-20 campaign. Benintendi's .280 batting average and .806 OPS remain a notch below his dynamic big-league debut last year, but his current form suggests a big September is in store for the 23-year-old.
Benintendi went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Monday's loss to Cleveland.
While Benintendi isn't posting big numbers in any particular stat column, the rookie is turning in a strong cross-category showing. He's now up to a .279/.358/.449 with 18 homers, 70 RBI , 14 stolen bases and 64 runs. It's also encouraging that Benintendi appears to be solidifying himself as the No. 3 hitter in the lineup.
