Nate Schierholtz hit a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's 12-inning loss to the Phillies.

Nate Schierholtz went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and a triple Monday as the Giants beat the Mets 6-1 in the first game of a doubleheader.

Nate Schierholtz went 3-for-3 with an RBI and a walk against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Schierholtz found himself on the bench at the beginning of the season after a poor spring, but it's going to be hard to sit him now with the start he's off to (.360, 2 HR, 6 RBI in 25 AB). That's bad news for Brandon Belt fans.

Nate Schierholtz launched a pair of solo home runs in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Rockies.

Schierholtz tagged Jeremy Guthrie in the fourth before taking Tyler Chatwood deep in the seventh. The bombs were his first of the season, while it was just the second multi-homer game of his career. Tonight was Schierholtz's first start of the year, though many more could be on the way if manager Bruce Bochy continues to be impatient with Brandon Belt.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that he considers Nate Schierholtz his starting right fielder for 2012.

The Giants are still interested in bringing Carlos Beltran back, but Schierholtz would be the most likely option if he signs elsewhere. Schierholtz, 26, batted .278/.326/.430 with nine homers, 41 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .756 OPS over 362 plate appearances this season. He was shut down earlier this month with a broken right foot, but is expected to be ready for spring training. Keep him in mind in NL-only leagues.
