Plate adjustment helps Barmes

For much of the season Pirates shortstop Clint Barmes struggled to drive the ball. While his glove remained reliable at shortstop, his bat was ice cold. After making an adjustment, Barmes batted .296 in July, his best average in a month since he hit .313 in June 2010. In limited playing time in August he is hitting .091.'s George Von Benko spoke with Barmes recently.
