J.J. Hardy went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during the Orioles' 8-2 win over the Nationals on Monday.

All it took was that first home run in late-June to get things started and now Hardy has hit safely in 15 of his last 19 games and is now batting .289 on the year with three home runs, 26 RBI and 30 runs scored on the year. The power numbers aren't where they're supposed to be, but given the incredibly slow start to the year, we'll take the late power display where we can get it and appreciate the improved average and on-base work.
