Belt went a combined 2-for-6 with two walks, an RBI and a pair of runs scored in Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies.
Belt led off in both contests -- as he has done for most of July -- and got on base four times as the Giants took both contests. The 31-year-old is slashing .241/.367/.422 and has already surpassed last season's total of 50 runs with 53 through 91 games this year.
Belt went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 8-3 win over Milwaukee.
Belt launched his first homer since June 27 but has already collected four multi-hit games in July. It was his 11th long ball of the season and he has a shot at reaching the 20-homer mark for the first time in his MLB career.
Belt went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 10-7 win over Milwaukee.
Belt continues to bat first in the order following the All-Star break. The veteran first baseman has been doing an extraordinary impression of a traditional leadoff hitter, slashing .361/.452/.471 with a stolen base and eight runs scored in nine games in that role. While unconventional (compared to his heart-of-the-order profile), Belt continues to be the Giants' top on-base man by a long shot, so he should stick atop the order for the foreseeable future.
Belt went 3-for-6 with a run scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over San Diego.
Belt was slotted second in the order for the third straight game with yet another southpaw on the mound. The 31-year-old has adapted well to his new role as a table-setter, getting on base 11 times over the last five contests (.440 on-base percentage). The Giants' offense has been on fire of late, so manager Bruce Bochy should continue to roll Belt out either first (against righties) or second (against lefties) in the order so long as this configuration continues to produce.
Belt went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and two runs scored in Sunday's 10-4 win over Arizona.
Belt has been operating as the club's leadoff man against righties this past week, and he moved down to second in the order against a southpaw Sunday. Part of the move to the top of the order was based on a lack of better on-base options, but it may have had something to do with the first baseman's mid-June power drought (.204 slugging percentage over last 15 games). Belt's power tends to come in bunches, so if he starts putting a charge into the ball again, then a move back to the middle of the order wouldn't be surprising.
