Headley appears to be figuring some things out, and it's another example of why there is no automatic out in this lineup. Unless the pitchers bat in the World Series, anyway.

Chase Headley went 2-for-2, drove in a run and scored a run in a win over the Mets on Wednesday.

He helped the Yankees score a run without benefit of a hit in the second inning. He walked, went to second on a wild pitch, went to third on a passed ball and scored on a groundout by Garrett Cooper. Headley came to the plate with the bases loaded in the sixth and lifted a sacrifice fly to drive in a run. He also doubled and singled in the game but neither of those factored into the scoring. The veteran third baseman is having another mediocre season, slashing .274/.354/.403 with seven homers and 46 RBI in 111 games.
