Zobrist starting to heat up

BALTIMORE -- Ben Zobrist went 4-for-6 on Saturday night, with three doubles, a triple, and four runs scored. His four extra-base hits tied the club record (sixth player to do so) for a single game. He also became the second player in club history to have four extra-base hits and score four runs in a game.

Zobrist is now hitting .268 with nine home runs and 36 RBIs, and is feeling quite comfortable at the plate.

"I feel more in control of my body, like my head's not moving as much," Zobrist said. "Just putting good swings on it, and trying to have the right kind of approach up there. [Saturday night] was a great night. I was able to hit some balls hard the other way and pull a couple down the line, as well to right field. So I feel good."
