LF Michael Saunders showed the value of batting practice by rapping two extra-base hits on Tuesday and adding two more Wednesday, a pair of run-scoring doubles. "He had a great early BP (Tuesday)," manager Eric Wedge said. "The ball was really jumping off his bat and he was able to take it into the game." The key for Saunders is to stay back more consistently, allowing him to get in position to drive the ball. Wedge is impressed how Saunders has handled inconsistent playing time.
