Staying power

First the bad news: Aaron Hill’s batting average and on-base percentage at month’s end has gone down each month since April (though he has a fighting chance to avoid that in August).

Despite that, however, his power numbers have been there each and every month – and at a surprisingly consistent rate. Should he maintain that for just one more month, the Jays’ second baseman will have a shot at 40 homers on the year, which would be a remarkable accomplishment – especially considering his previous high was 17 in 2007.

Hill’s 30th homer, which he launched during Tuesday night’s ballgame, was his sixth this month. That gives him monthly totals of 5, 7, 7, 5 and 6 so far this season. His monthly RBI totals, meanwhile, are 20, 17, 19, 14 and 12 — with a handful of games left to play in August.
