by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) What Athletics outfielder Sam Fuld has achieved recently can not be considered a full-blown hot streak, but it beats 7-for-79.

That is what Fuld suffered through before managing four hits in his last five at-bats. He went 3-for-4 against Texas on Thursday, his first multi-hit game since April 22, afer scoring the game-winner Wednesday.

"Hitting is definitely as much about confidence as anything, so I think that maybe there was something that happened (Wednesday) night, just being a part of that walk-off win that gives you confidence at the plate," Fuld told the San Francisco Chronicle. "It's tough to pinpoint exactly what it is, but I feel like that was certainly a factor."

Fuld owns a slash line of .203/.272/.301 on the year.
