Remember that he's playing in a bandbox at the moment in Bakersfield. That will enhance anyone's power numbers.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
