Upton is hitting .344 (11-for-32) with five home runs and 12 RBIs in eight games on the road trip. The five home runs are a personal best for any road trip or homestand.
"B.J.'s playing at this higher level," Joe Maddon said. "I think the last time I saw something similar to this it was in the playoffs in 2008. It's fun to watch because I can really see that his focus is great. His confidence is soaring. You're starting to see the abilities matching the expectations. He's in a good place right now."
Upton downplayed what he's been doing.
"Man, I'm just trying to hit it where it's pitched," he said.
