Ty Wigginton is playing some of the best baseball of his 9-year career this season for the Baltimore Orioles, and is on a current 7-game hit-streak.  Wigginton, who has never hit better than .285 in a season, is currently hitting .320 with 12 HRs and 24 RBIs.  He is on pace to easily surpass his career-high of 24 HRs, as his 12 homers this season are good enough for second best in all of baseball so far.  What is even more impressive about his current power surge is that he has already had three multi-homerun games this season.  Wigginton has been seeing the ball extremely well all season, especially lately.  In his current 7-game hit-streak, the last four have been multi-hit games.  Unfortunately for the Orioles, Wigginton is one of the few things they can be happy with so far this season.  They are already deep at the bottom of the AL East standings and other than Wigginton their offense has been stagnant.  Nick Markakis and Miguel Tejada have been decent, but the Orioles need to give their pitching more run support.  Guys like Kevin Millwood, Jeremy Gunthrie, and Brian Matusz have been pitching pretty well this season, but have been getting very little run-support.  More guys need to step up like Wigginton is, or the Orioles season will just keep getting uglier.
