Dee Gordon went 1-for-4, smacking his second home run with two RBI in a 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
Gordon has been struggling since the calendar turned to June, going just 10-for-42 (.238 BA) with a homer, seven RBI, five runs scored and two stolen bases. After hitting .333 in April, it has been all down hill from there as he now sits on a .278 average which is still respectable as long as he can maintain a decent on-base percentage (.324 OBP) in an effort to utilize his lightning speed.

Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
