"I just think he's trying a little too hard," manager Sam Perlozzo said. "Maybe if we get the one home run out of the way, we'd be better off, but I hate to say that. He's gotten a lot of base hits up the middle and the other way, and that's kind of what we'd like to see out of him. We know he's going to hit his home runs. Just work on getting his base hits and we'll worry about the long ball after that."
