Brandon Crawford went 3-for-3 with a homer, a double, three RBI and a walk Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Crawford opened the season hitting seventh in front of the pitcher, which seemed like a good reason to be skeptical of his production last year; after all, that's a bad spot for runs and RBI and he wasn't going to steal bases, either. Crawford, though, is hitting fifth regularly now and even fourth on occasion, and he's collected 58 RBI in 86 games. He'll slow down some, but he's a much better bet while hitting in the middle of the order.
