And hey, it's only July! That's right, you can read all about the crazy 2-for-4 day here in the box score; Jones' two-single evening ballooned [verb choice intended] his average from .159 to a heftier [adjective choice intended] .168.
Only 32 points away from Mendoza! It's the first uptick in his average since May 14, his last two-hit game. I'll have to update my "March Toward Mendoza" graph (but will do so later as EK's graph deserves the entire spotlight this morning).
