The reason for Cruz's recent torrid success is obvious, Texas manager Ron Washington says.
"Look at where he's getting his big stuff -- in the big part of the field," Washington said. "Even his singles have been over the shortstop's head or they have been little bloops into right field. Then his big stuff has been left-center. When he stays in the big part of the field he is at his best."
