He raised his batting average to .301 while posting his sixth multi-hit game in the last seven. Aoki has raised his batting average 54 points in that stretch by batting .500 in 26 at-bats. He has nearly twice as many walks (14) as strikeouts (eight) this season.

(5/4/13) Brewers outfielder Norichika Aoki notched his third straight two-hit game Saturday against the Cardinals. Aoki led off the game with a single and was driven home on a two-run homer off the bat of Jean Segura.
He also singled in the fifth and was able to drive in the game-tying run in the eighth inning on a fielder's choice.
Aoki was also hit by a pitch twice and finished 2 for 2 with an RBI and run in a 7-6 defeat. He has racked up six hits over his last 11 at-bats (.545).
|Norichika Aoki gets a rest day Wednesday|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/1/13) Norichika Aoki is out of Wednesday's lineup against Pittsburgh, the club announced.
Aoki has been in a slump since a torrid start to the season. He doesn't have a multi-hit game since April 8 and is hitting .169/.270/.292 since. His overall numbers are fine -- .250/.339/.385, a 97 OPS+ -- but the Brewers hope a day off Wednesday can help him break out of his slump and find more games like his first seven (.419/.486/.581) as opposed to the last 17.
|When the Brewers signed Norichika Aoki to a two-year deal last January, it was not clear where the former Yakult Swallow would fit in with his new club. Particularly once Ryan Braun had his 50-game drug suspension overturned, it appeared that Aoki would struggle to get playing time. A season-ending knee injury to Mat Gamel changed all that, as Aoki eventually took over for Corey Hart in right field, while Hart replaced Gamel at first base. Once installed in the lineup, Aoki didnít give manager Ron Roenicke any reason to remove him, as he hit .288 with 10 home runs, 81 runs, 50 RBI and 30 stolen bases. Aoki will begin the 2013 season as a known quantity with a known role, serving as the Brewers' leadoff hitter. His penchant for stealing bases and scoring runs will give him value in Rotisserie leagues, while his aversion to strikeouts makes him an attractive option in Head-to-Head formats. Regardless of format, owners in standard mixed leagues should target the 31-year-old in the latter portions of the middle rounds. (Updated 1/2/13)|
