Sizemore makes most of his opportunity

Sometimes a hitter just needs some opportunities. Over his last six games, Grady Sizemore is proving this to be true. The outfielder came into Saturday’s game hitting just .238 on the season but was 5-for-15 in his previous five games. Already swinging a hot bat, Sizemore turned that 5-for-15 into a 9-for-20 streak Saturday with a 4-for-5 performance in the Phillies’ 7-5 win, in which the lefty singled three times, doubled once and scored a run.
