Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored durign the Rangers' 8-3 loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.
Though he's hitting .302 on the year, the actual power production from Beltre is a little underwhelming. The home run was just his sixth of the year and his first in nine games while his one RBI was his first in his last eight. His strikeout rate is a little high for what he usually provides and his increased ground ball rate isn't exactly helping his power totals. Obviously there's plenty of time to turn things around, so don't go selling on him too soon here.ANALYST: Howard Bender
