It's awesome that Garrett Jones is having such a fantastic stretch, especially after struggling for much of the season. Right now, he stands at .292 with 23 home runs and 75 RBI and a .550 slugging percentage. In just the last month he's hit .358 with 7 home runs and 23 RBI.

He was always one of my 'favorites' when he played for the Rochester Red Wings while in the Twins system. It's cool to see he's become an integral part of the Pirates' incredible turn around.
