Villar enjoyed a productive day at the plate, highlighted by a solo home run in the fourth inning followed by a stolen base in the eighth. He now has 23 homers and 36 swiped bags in 152 games on the season. While his aggressiveness on the basepaths doesn't come as a big surprise, his .466 slugging percentage is nearly 50 points above his career average.
Villar went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored, a walk and a stolen base in the Orioles' 8-2 win over the Tigers on Sunday.
Villar provided the Orioles with some insurance in the sixth inning after plating two with a single to center field.

Villar hasn't been too hot at the plate lately but still has a .276/.343/.452 triple slash along with 21 home runs and 67 RBI through 647 plate appearances on the season. He's expected to be in the starting lineup again Monday in the series finale against the Tigers.

Villar has gone 7-for-14 with two homers, three RBI and eight runs scored in the first three games of the series versus the Angels, lifting his season batting line to .257/.322/.415 with 13 homers, 21 steals, 67 runs scored and 45 RBI.

Villar was originally scheduled to play the keystone Saturday, but he was instead pulled from fielding duty.

Villar went 2-for-8 with a two-run homer and three stolen bases while scoring thrice in a 16-inning victory over the Angels on Thursday.
Villar slugged a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the 16th inning to plate the winning runs in a game that lasted over six hours. The opportunity would not have come if not for his arm -- he threw out the potential winning run at the plate in the bottom half of the previous inning to extend the game. For good measure, Villar was a terror on the basepaths, swiping three bases for the first time this season. The heroic performance followed a nine-game slump in which Villar had hit a meek .100 (4-for-40). Overall, he is slashing .248/.311/.401 with 12 homers, 62 runs scored and 20 steals in 440 plate appearances this season.

While this was his fifth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests, Villar has shown virtually no power, with only one double during that stretch. This was Villar's first homer since June 26, but despite the long homer drought, Villar still has an outside shot to set a new career high in the category or at least pass his total from last season. He will need 15 to best his 2018 total and 20 homers for a new high-water mark. Villar is hitting .258 with 11 home runs, 42 RBI, 59 runs and 17 steals in 376 at-bats this season.

Villar went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Padres.
His fourth-inning shot off Matt Strahm briefly brought the O's to within a run at 4-3, before the wheels came off entirely for Dylan Bundy and the Baltimore bullpen. Villar is slashing just .252/.315/.415 on the year, but his counting stats -- 10 homers, 15 steals, 33 RBI and 47 runs in 80 games -- have given him solid fantasy value.

This was the first time all season Villar went deep and stole a base in the same game, though he has a pair of homers in the last five games and three steals in his past seven contests. Overall, Villar is batting .249 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 45 runs and 15 steals in 297 at-bats this season.
