| || McGaughey Bashes 5 Base Hits |
Monday, April 19th, 2055
Steve McGaughey exploded for a barrage of base hits today at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Baltimore right fielder had a field day in the 14-1 triumph over the Los Angeles Angels, finishing 5-for-5.
"My hitting philosophy is simple," he said. "I focus on just seeing the ball and I try to get a good pitch."
McGaughey must have focused at least 5 times and apparently got some good pitches, too, leading to one of his best days ever with the bat. Steve McGaughey singled in the 2nd, singled in the 3rd, singled in the 5th, hit a two-run home run off David Reyes in the 6th and singled in the 8th.
McGaughey is hitting .305 so far this season with 7 RBIs and 8 runs scored. He has 18 hits including 4 home runs, 6 walks and .373 OBP.
