Things are starting to go right for Quentin, who went 2-for-3 with a walk and two doubles on Saturday. During the past 11 games, he's hitting .324 with a .429 on-base percentage. Seven of his 11 hits during that time have gone for extra bases (six doubles and one home run). Quentin's batting average stood at .222 entering Sunday's game.
"He's starting to show signs of the player that he is," manager Bud Black said. "I'm liking the swings he's taking, the bat speed's there. He's just missed some pitches over the past couple weeks, but he's also squaring some up, too.
"When he's right, he's a force. We need him right."
