Line of the Day: June 13th, 2011

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI to lead the Astros to an 8-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves and extended his hitting streak to a career-best 23 games. His hitting streak is tied for the fourth-longest in team history and second only to Andre Ethier's 30-game streak this season.

Line: 4 AB, 1 R, 3 H, 4 RBI; HR, BB

My fantasy perspective: Pence has been on an absolute tear during his 23-game hitting streak. He's batting .406 (39/96) with four home runs, 12 XBH, 19 RBI and 19 runs scored and has raised his average from .280 to .325.

Pence has hit 25 home runs in each of the past three season and is currently on pace for 22 home runs this season with 121 RBI. His career-high for RBI is 91. His overall 5x5 line of .325/33/9/50/3 ranks him as the 23rd overall fantasy player and 11th-best outfielder. Owners who grabbed him with an ADP of 57.3 are seeing a much higher return on investment already.
