McLouth looking to overcome struggles

By  | 

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Wearing a new set of contact lenses, Nate
McLouth has been able to see the ball better than ever this spring.

That doesn't mean, however, that the Atlanta center fielder has
been able to hit it.

Mired in a 0 for 28 slump with 12 strikeouts, McLouth batted in
every inning of a rain-shorted minor league game Sunday in hopes of
getting on track with the start of the season two weeks away.

McLouth got three hits - two more than he's had in real spring
games. Maybe the move worked. Finally, he had something positive to
build on.
