McGehee's hits coming at opportune times

McGehee's hits coming at opportune times

SAN FRANCISCO -- Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee has a knack for driving in important runs. This season, he's hitting .409 with runners in scoring position and .417 with runners in scoring position and two outs.

"He's given us a lot of production and is getting big hits," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "He's only hit one home run but he's coming up with big hits and driving in big runs."

McGehee's lone home run came more than a week ago, when the Marlins were in San Diego.

"I hope he doesn't get caught up in the home runs," Redmond said.

McGehee said his manager has nothing to worry about when it comes to his approach at the plate.

"You try to do too much and you're going to have a rough night," he said.
