Ian Desmond went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Padres on Saturday.

Desmond is just 4-for-24 (.167) over his last seven games, but three of those hits were home runs, giving him six RBI and five runs scored in that span. The .227 average is a little tough to take, but it's certainly a little easier to stomach when 12 home runs and 35 RBI come alongside it.ANALYST: Howard Bender
