"We're 17-11, and I don't think we've hit like we can hit all year," Laird said. "We've been struggling for runs and getting a three-run homer to give us a lead, but I think this team is capable of scoring a lot more runs. Just be patient and don't have guys pressing. If we keep pitching the way we are, we're going to win a lot of games."
Laird said he knows his role is to play behind Gattis but added "I'm ready to go every day, four , five, six, seven in a row, I'll do it."
