White Sox | Gordon Beckham's defense carries him
Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham's stellar defense at the keystone kept him in the lineup in the early part of the season while he struggled at the plate. Now, he has taken a 10-game hitting streak into the game Tuesday, June 5, in which he has hit .333 with three homers, eight RBIs and 10 runs scored. He has seven home runs this season, only three shy of last year's total. Beckham has been trying to remain on an even keel despite going through tough patches at the plate, but his defensive prowess has allowed him to see consistent at-bats. "He has showed glimpses of (being good)," manager Robin Ventura said. "It's just being able to consistently do it. A lot goes in when he has a game like he had in Seattle, you come back and there are distractions and different things. He has the ability. He has shown it."
