Moreland went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a walk Saturday against the Padres.

Both of Moreland's homers came against right-handed starter James Shields, and 14 of the lefty's 16 blasts this season have been against right-handed pitching. The first baseman is on pace to obliterate his previous career highs of 23 home runs and 60 RBI.

Moreland hit a pair of two-run homers Tuesday against the Orioles.

The ball was carrying out Tuesday, and Moreland took advantage, hitting two home runs for the second night in a row. This was his seventh career multi-homer game and he leads Texas with 14 home runs on the season. His current hot streak is clearly unsustainable, but the Rangers play in Baltimore again Wednesday, so owners may as well continue to ride the hot hand.

Moreland hit a pair of homers in the Rangers' win over the Orioles on Monday night.

He continues to produce at a career-best clip, as the two-homer effort brings his season total to 12, while his .300/.346/.533 line represents a full-season best in all three categories. Moreland will continue to benefit from hitting behind the likes of Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre in a Texas lineup capable of hanging crooked numbers on any given night.

Moreland came through in the clutch with a pinch-hit two-run single in Friday's 2-1 win over the White Sox.

Moreland is now batting .304 with eight home runs and 32 RBI on the season and will continue to put up useful numbers as long as he continues to see the majority of the starts at first base.
