Description: After a long dry spell, Orioles 1B/OF Steve Pearce finally put one over the wall.
Insight: Pearce had gone 19 games without hitting a home run and batting an ugly .155 to boot. A far cry from his .309 May with four homers and .361 June with five homers. It's not yet time to jump back on the bandwagon, but at least we know he's trying.

Insight: The 31-year-old hit two round-trippers Monday night and now has a .327 average, 10 homers, 27 RBI and a .988 OPS in 150 at-bats. He's been batting second in front of the Adam Jones-Nelson Cruz-Chris Davis trio so he's been getting a lot of pitches to hit and he hasn't been missing them. Pearce has been a platoon player at best in his career because of his inability to hit righties, but he's batting over .300 with five home runs against them this season.
