Skinny: Avery began the week by continuing his recent hot streak with the Tides, going 5-for-9 with a homer, a double and two runs — then he got the call to the Show. He went 0-for-4 in his big league debut but followed that by collecting five hits in his next 14 at-bats, including a double and an RBI triple against the New York Yankees on Monday.
