Ian Desmond went 1-for-3 with a home run, one RBI, a runs scored and a walk during the Nationals' 7-0 win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Desmond has just two hits over his last 20 at-bats (six games), but both happen to be home runs. The batting average has now been dragged down to .228 on the season, but with 11 home runs and 33 RBI, it's tough to argue against him, especially given the level of production we normally see out of the shortstop position. The .271 BABIP is nearly 50 points below his career average, so expect a few bounces to finally go his way and watch that average get back to a much more respectable level soon enough.
