Phillies' Jeff Francoeur gets four hits in win over the Braves
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur did some damage against the team with which he began his career.
In Monday night's 5-2 win over the Braves, Francoeur went 4 for 5 with two RBI. One of those hits was a ninth-inning triple that scored Darin Ruf. Francoeur also had an RBI double in the first that scored Ben Revere.
Francoeur, who was drafted by the Braves in 2002 and made his major-league debut with Atlanta in 2005, entered the game on an 0-for-19 skid, which included going hitless in 13 at-bats in his team's series against the Cardinals.
"In so many words, I'd like to say I was mentally [messed up] on Thursday," Francoeur said about the Cardinals series, per MLB.com. "I was scuffling. To get some time off this weekend was a big deal for me, man. Anybody that knows me knows that I grind hard, I play hard. I put a lot of pressure on myself. To get that time to really rest and relax, I felt really comfortable coming into today."
Francoeur is now hitting a slash line of .214/.267/.386.

|(4/30/15) Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard is back in the cleanup spot for the first time since April 18, per Philadelphia Daily News. Howard was removed from the No. 4 spot after the first eight games of the season in favor of Jeff Francoeur.
Francoeur has been held without a hit over his last 13 at-bats, with his batting average dipping from .227 to .180 over the past four games. He will bat fifth on Thursday against the Cardinals. Howard is hitting .222 (4 for 18) with three homers and six RBI over his last five games.
Phillies keep same lineup vs. Red Sox, OF Odubel Herrera still out
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/9/15) The Phillies will roll out the same lineup as they did Wednesday in Thursday's series finale against the Red Sox, with Jeff Francoeur looking to continue his power surge from the seventh spot in the order.
Francoeur hit a three-run homer on Wednesday, his first since 2013, to spark the Phillies to a victory. He is a .310 hitter lifetime against Boston starter Justin Masterson, clubbing two doubles and driving in three.
Outfielder Odubel Herrera will not start for the second straight day, as he continues to be bothered by a sore left foot. He remains day to day.
Phillies' Jeff Francoeur unleashes first MLB home run since 2013
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg hinted that he won't yank hot bats from Philadelphia's lineup this season, and veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur may make that difficult for Sandberg after his performance Wednesday night against Boston.
Francoeur launched a three-run home run off Rick Porcello in his first start of the season, leading his club to a 4-2 victory. It was his first home run since June 16, 2013, when he was a member of the Royals. He is hitting .400 (2 for 5) to start the year.
"I hit (15) in El Paso last year," Francoeur said, per MLB.com. "It was nice. It was a lot of hard work last year. It makes you appreciate being back up here and getting those opportunities. And you don’t want to miss them. It’s a lot of fun."
