Tyler Flowers reached base four times and drove in four runs in Monday's shootout win over the Marlins.

It doesn't happen very often that you drive in four runs without the benefit of an extra-base hit, but that's what happened with Flowers Monday with the catcher delivering a pair of two-RBI singles. He also drew two walks. Flower has had an underrated season in Atlanta with a .271/.370/.424 batting line and seven homers. He'll get more playing time down the stretch with A.J. Pierzynski out of commission.
