Steve Pearce hit his 15th home run of the season in a loss to the Blue Jays in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday.

The O's were getting skunked before Pearce's solo shot got them on the board in the seventh inning. Coming off a surprising 2014 season, Pearce has been a disappointing this year, batting .219/.290/.431 with 38 RBI and 40 runs scored in 87 games. It's certainly not the encore the Orioles had in mind from their Opening Day starting first baseman.

Steve Pearce clubbed a two-run home run as the Orioles topped the Nationals on Wednesday.

Pearce opened up the scoring early, blasting a two-run home run to left field off of Max Scherzer. It would account for half of the Orioles' offense on the night, pairing with Manny Machado's two-run blast. Pearce has found his power stroke, swatting five home runs in his last 11 games. He has 14 overall on the season along with 37 RBI and a .227/.298/.443 batting line.

Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Friday's 8-6 loss to the Rays.

Pearce did his damage late, launching a two-run homer in the sixth inning and a solo shot in the ninth. It wouldn't be enough to prevent defeat. While he's showcased some nice pop at times, his .220/.289/.423 triple-slash leaves something to be desired.

Steve Pearce slugged a go-ahead solo home run in the ninth inning, helping the Orioles pull out a win against the Yankees on Wednesday.

The blast was Pearce's only hit in four at-bats on the night. The game was tied at 3-3 when he sent an Adam Warren offering over the fence in left-center at Yankee Stadium. It's his 10th homer of the year. Pearce carries a mediocre .221/.292/.401 batting line with 27 RBI as well.

Pearce missed over a month with a strained oblique. He's been a big disappointment in the followup to his "breakout" 2014 and probably won't hold much fantasy value down the stretch. The 32-year-old is slashing just .227/.290/.392 in 58 total games this season.
