Swisher reaching new heights

Cliff Lee was no mystery to Nick Swisher, who reached the Mariners' starter for two long home runs in Tuesday's loss.

Swisher is going for a career year in all-around performance. He is batting .289, which is  40 points above his lifetime average. He has a career high three triples and with 76 hits, Swisher  is well within reach of his single season high of 141. He also has13 homers and 47 runs batted in. 

At $6.8 million, he's a bargain.
