Theriot wielding torrid bat for Giants
SAN FRANCISCO -- Since being activated from the disabled list after an elbow injury, Ryan Theriot has batted .413 (19-for-46) entering Friday's game against the Rangers, including going 8-for-13 at the plate in the recent series against San Diego.

"He's really played outstanding ball after coming off the DL," manager Bruce Bochy said. "Nobody is hitting the ball harder than he is."

Theriot was batting .500 (14-for-28) through seven games in the month of June, with a .563 on-base percentage and a .607 slugging percentage.

His averages could be even higher, too, had some of his several line-drive outs and hard grounders gone through for hits.

"He's getting hard outs, too," Bochy said. "If you look at the percentage of hard-hit balls, he's probably leading our club right now the last 10 days."
