Chipper talked with Mclouth

Last week in Pittsburgh, McLouth turned a conversation with Chipper Jones about hitting into a round of swings in the batting cage and a session together at the video monitor. For so many weeks, "staying on his back side" was a point of focus for McLouth, but seeing Jones demonstrate good weight transfer made something click. Jones talked about hitting balls through the wall and not over it, hitting down on balls to create backspin. In his next three games, McLouth homered twice and tripled. "He very easily could have hit three homers [Sunday] night," Jones said. "For him to have made that drastic a turnaround in a week tells you that he’s doing everything just right. ... He’s getting in good hitter’s counts, and when they come across the plate he’s smoking them."
