Murphy continued to hit well

After his game-winning home run on Monday night, Daniel Murphy continued to mash the ball on Tuesday, going 3-for-4 to raise his average to .205.

Over the last week, Murphy has hit .333 with four doubles, a home run, and nine RBI.

Murphy’s early-season struggles appeared to be at least partially due to the fact that he was still recovering from a strained hamstring, as he often didn’t bust it down the first base line and looked even less rangy than usual at second base.

On Tuesday night, Murphy was going full throttle – hopefully a sign that he is fully healed.
