Catcher Chris Herrmann went deep with an opposite field home run in Tuesday night's victory over the White Sox. The home run was his fifth on the year and made for three consecutive starts with a home run.
Herrmann has struggled to stay above the Mendoza line for most of the season, but seems to be turning it on as of late. Over the last seven days, Herrmann is hitting .417 to go with three home runs and four RBIs. He posted a .284 AVG in 2016 over 148 ABs so hopefully this hot streak will continue to bring him closer to a more productive average. The D-backs face LHP ace Jose Quintana on Wednesday, so keep an eye on whether manager Torey Lovullo opts to ride the hot hand in Herrmann or go with the right-handed hitting Jeff Mathis behind the plate against a lefty.
