Analysis: Springer started a bit slowly upon last week's return from a quad injury that kept him out around two weeks, but he's 5 for 14 with three runs scored thus far in this home-and-home series. The All-Star outfielder now owns a .452 average (14 for 31) with seven RBIs and 10 runs scored in seven interleague games this season.
