Cozart struggled earlier this season in the second spot but has thrived hitting either seventh or eighth. He hit seventh in Tuesday's 9-1 loss to the Cubs and went 1-for-4 with a double and a run. He also made a diving play at short.
Cozart has a career-high 14-game hitting streak, including a pair of doubles during Monday's 2-0 loss to Chicago. During the streak, he is batting .373 (22-for-59) and is hitting .347 (33-for-95) in his last 26 games.
Baker often likes to say that water seeks its own level for hitters, and believes that axiom applies to Cozart, too.
"He appears to be a lot more confident and a lot more aggressive," Baker said. "Life is pretty good when you're getting hits. Life is miserable when you're not. I told him before, that two hits a day for a week can cure almost any baseball ill that you have. He's been doing that for two weeks now."
