Adam LaRoche has reached base in 16 of his last 24 plate appearances.
LaRoche has a modest six-game hitting streak going and has picked up multiple hits in three of those contests, raising his average from .129 to .196. The first baseman hasn't homered since April 20, but he's in a much better place at the plate, so the power should come around. "It feels good," LaRoche said after Wednesday's game. "Just being a little more patient overall, taking some walks, getting in some better hitter's counts. For a week or two there, I felt like I was 1-2 every at-bat and in defensive mode. So getting back to seeing it again is nice."
