After a fairly slow start, Chad Tracy has gotten hot in a hurry. Tracy continued to hit well on Monday, as he was 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, and four runs batted in.

Over his last six games, Tracy is now 10-for-25 with two home runs.

Third baseman John Whittleman (.341/.445/.604) was 1-for-3 with a double – his 10th – and two walks.

Leadoff man Craig Gentry had two singles, a walk, a HBP, and a stolen base. The former Arkansas Razorback also scored three runs.

Second baseman Jose Vallejo and shortstop Marcus Lemon each doubled while K.C. Herren singled three times in four at-bats.

Starting pitcher Glenn Swanson (2.19 ERA/.218 BAA) picked up his fifth win of the season, as he yielded two runs on five hits in six innings. Swanson, who walked one and fanned seven, has combined for just four walks in his six starts this season.

Brennan Garr and Brett Zamzow closed it out with three combined frames of scoreless relief.
