Harrison extended his hitting streak to 10 games on Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, two RBI and his second steal of the season.

He's on an absolute tear right now, with six multi-hit performances in his last eight games and a .488 (21-for-43) batting average over the course of the streak. After producing very little over the first six weeks of the season, Harrison seems determined to make up for lost time.

Harrison went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI Tuesday against Minnesota.

His double was initially ruled to be a homer before replay changed the call. Still, he remains on fire with 15 hits in his last 29 at-bats. Interestingly, the Pirates have kept Harrison down in the batting order -- he hit seventh Tuesday. That's helped to keep the pressure off Harrison, but with Gregory Polanco struggling at the top of the order, manager Clint Hurdle might decide to flip the two in the coming days.

Harrison will bat seventh and play third base Friday afternoon against the Cubs.

His 3-for-4 effort Thursday lifted his batting average to the Mendoza line at an even .200. Since getting a quick break, Harrison has six hits in 10 at-bats over his last three starts and is 1-for-3 against Friday starter, Kyle Hendricks. He moved to left field Wednesday, with manager Clint Hurdle saying that sometimes some guys benefit from changing positions, comparing it to re-arranging furniture in the living room for a fresh look.

Harrison is leading off against Phillies lefty Cole Hamels on Wednesday.

He was in that spot for Sunday's game too, and the Pirates appear to be mixing at matching with platoons on a regular basis. Harrison homered and stole a base in Tuesday's game, and he'll look to continue making strides toward breaking out of his sluggish start to the season.

Harrison socked a three-run homer Tuesday and stole his first base of the season against the Phillies.

He also walked for just the fourth time in 113 at-bats. Harrison, who entered the game with two hits in 37 at-bats, isn't quite out of the woods yet. He committed his sixth error in 233.2 innings at third base after making three miscues in 518.2 innings last season. Still, the dinger and walk are both encouraging signs for Harrison.

Harrison is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

Harrison has been slumping heavily lately, causing him to lose reps to Jung Ho Kang at third base. He'll return to the lineup Tuesday, however, as Kang will instead take the starting spot of Jordy Mercer for the evening contest.

Harrison is out of the lineup Monday against the Phillies.

Harrison is 1-for-14 (.071) in the last seven days and a day off could help him right the ship. He's now hitting .173 on the season and has as many strikeouts as hits. Jung Ho Kang will get the start at third instead.

Harrison went 1-for-4 with a run scored Friday. He also drew his first walk in 90 plate appearances Thursday.

The hit was just his second in 37 at-bats. Harrison looked shaky at third base Friday, committing one error while nearly making a second one, and it's possible he's feeling more pressure after signing a $27 million deal in April. He's hitless in three at-bats against Saturday starter, Carlos Martinez.
