Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta had his second two-double game in May Sunday against the Rangers. It was also his seventh multi-hit game this month.
Peralta is batting .370 (20 for 54) in 15 May games, sending his average from .292 to .320. He also has two home runs, five doubles, six RBI, nine walks and 12 runs in May.
Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta hit his second home run in five days Thursday, a solo shot in a 10-4 loss to the Rangers.
Peralta went 1 for 4 in the game overall, with just the run scored and driven in from the home run. He has four on the season, and is batting .326 in 138 at-bats.
“Peralta comes into 2013 in great shape. His power numbers have always been above average, until he started playing for Detroit and that huge ball park. This year the Tigers lineup is more stacked than ever, which means if he can hit .250 with 15 HRs, you may get 75+ RBIs. ”
