Alex Avila went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBI in total in Thursday's win over the Pirates.
Avila hit a two-run blast off Pirates starter Chad Kuhl in the third inning, his third homer of the year, and he added an RBI double in the ninth for good measure. There was some sleeper hype for Avila coming into the year after he performed well in a part-time role with the Tigers and Cubs last year, but he hasn't found the same success in the desert. The 31-year-old is hitting just .124/.240/.219 in 45 games for the Snakes thus far. Jun 22 - 12:15 AM
