In what has seemed like a turnaround, outfielder Carl Crawford has now had four consecutive multi-hit games. The 33 year old suffered a sprained ankle that kept him out of action and left him struggling to regain form upon returning.

Coming out of the All-Star break, manager Don Mattingly wanted more consistency in his line up, which coincided with giving the starting job in left field to Crawford. Mattingly recently shared his faith in Crawford’s ability to hit well and Adrian Gonzalez agreed.

Gonzalez stated when the left fielder gets going offensively, he could be a real force for the Los Angeles Dodgers because of his ability to read pitches and capitalize on mistakes.

In the 2013 postseason, Crawford led the team with 13 hits. Four of the hits were home runs and if Crawford is able to replicate that success, he’ll be a valuable asset. On Wednesday, Crawford had two hits, one RBI and scored a run in the Dodgers’ 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves.
