Billy Hamilton went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs, and three stolen bases against the Pirates on Tuesday.
Hamilton has been on fire of late, going 10-for-21 (.476 BA) with four extra-base hits (2 HR), five RBI, seven runs scored and five stolen bases over his last six games. After a slow start to the season, Hamilton has really picked up the pace of late and is now just eight stolen bases off the pace of league-leader Dee Gordon (36) with 28 steals on 36 attempts as he continues to be a threat every time he gets aboard. As long as his on-base percentage (.311) remains on the upswing, he will be a great contributor in both runs and stolen bases as we get into the heart of summer. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
