The Shark swinging hot bat
Outfielder Roger Bernadina has been on a hot streak, going 17-for-46 [.370] in his last 12 games to raise his batting average to .281. He also has hit three homers in his last four games.
With Rick Ankiel on the disabled list because of a rib cage injury, Bernadina will get a chance to play every day. Bernadina will hit second against right-handers and ninth against left-handers.
“I’m in a groove right now,” Bernadina said. “I just want to keep it up. So far it is going good. I want to do my best, get better every day and go from there.”
