Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored against the Mariners on Tuesday.
Beltre has now hit safely in six of his last seven games and is batting .345 (10-for-29) with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored over that span. He still has a long way to go before earning back his draft value, but Beltre has been known to go on a hot streak that could put his overall numbers back into a spot where you don;t even care how high you drafted him.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
