Ian Desmond went 5-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Rockies on Monday.

Desmond had himself a monster game on Monday night, and is now riding an eight-game hit streak that was started back on July 9. He is now slashing .253/.302/.445 with 17 home runs, 62 RBI and 10 stolen bases through 371 at-bats, but 114 strikeouts have him sitting on a 30.7 strikeout rate. Even with a lot of swing and misses, Desmond remains one of the top options at the shortstop as long as his power stroke holds up the rest of the way.
