J.J. Hardy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the Yankees on Saturday.
Everyone's head is spinning as it only took 247 at-bats for the shortstop to finally leave the yard. Hardy has been quite the enigma this season as he is clearly seeing the ball differently, but not in an entirely negative way. He may not be hitting for power, but a .291 average is the best he's put forth since his 2008 season with the Brewers. Obviously though, his fantasy owners would gladly trade 20 points off the batting average if it meant a bigger boost in the counting stats.ANALYST: Howard Bender
