"He's given us a lot of production and is getting big hits," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "He's only hit one home run but he's coming up with big hits and driving in big runs."

McGehee's lone home run came more than a week ago, when the Marlins were in San Diego.

"I hope he doesn't get caught up in the home runs," Redmond said.

McGehee said his manager has nothing to worry about when it comes to his approach at the plate.

"You try to do too much and you're going to have a rough night," he said.
