4/26/2017 Yangervis Solarte, SD, 3B
Solarte had three hits and drove in a run Tuesday.

Analysis: It was the second consecutive three-hit game for Solarte, who has hit safely in six straight games while posting a .560 OBP.
4/26/2017 Chris Owings, Ari, SS
Owings was 2 for 4 with a triple, three RBIs and a run scored Tuesday.

Analysis: Owings was moved back to No. 2 in the lineup, a spot in which he's batted .406 with seven RBIs in eight games. He has 10 RBIs in his last five games overall while going 7 for 17 (.412).
4/26/2017 A.J. Pollock, Ari, CF
Pollock was 2 for 4 with a double, an RBI, three runs scored and two stolen bases Tuesday.

Analysis: Arizona's leadoff man has been red-hot, batting .457 in his last eight games with nine runs and five steals.
4/26/2017 Paul Goldschmidt, Ari, 1B
Goldschmidt had a homer among his four hits and drove in three runs to tie a team record with his fourth straight multi-RBI game, helping the Diamondbacks roll over the San Diego Padres 9-3 on Tuesday night.

Analysis: Goldschmidt, who has homered in his last two starts and has nine RBIs in the past four, returned after being kept out of the lineup Monday. "He was probably able to turn off his brain for a period of time when he's not used to turning off his mind and I think it was very refreshing for him,'' Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. Don't expect the star to get too many more days off considering he's sat out just seven games combined over the previous two seasons.
4/26/2017 Ty Blach, SF, P
Blach lost to the Dodgers on Tuesday as he allowed two runs and four hits in five innings, walking one and striking out two in a 2-1 defeat.

Analysis: It was Blach's first start in place of injured ace Madison Bumgarner, and he certainly pitched well enough to remain in the rotation. Blach, who had come out of the bullpen in his first seven appearances of the season, has an impressive 1.03 WHIP.
4/26/2017 Cody Bellinger, LAD, LF
The Dodgers promoted Bellinger, one of their top prospects, from Triple-A Oklahoma City before Tuesday's game at San Francisco and started him in left field. The 21-year-old finished 1 for 3 with a walk.

Analysis: The 21-year-old Bellinger beat out an infield single in the ninth inning for his first major league hit. He hit .338 with five homers, 15 RBIs and six steals in 17 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.
4/26/2017 Christian Arroyo, SF, SS
Arroyo got his first major league hit with a first-inning single Tuesday.

Analysis: Arroyo received a standing ovation after the hit, though the highly touted prospect went on to strike out twice and pop out in the final three at-bats of his second major league game.
4/26/2017 Clayton Kershaw, LAD, P
Kershaw improved to 4-1 on Tuesday as he surrendered one run and six hits in seven innings at San Francisco, walking one and striking out seven in a 2-1 victory.

Analysis: Kershaw suffered a bruised calf in the first inning when he sprawled out to stop a grounder, but he said after the game it was nothing more than an annoyance. ''The calf really wasn't a problem, it was more of a stuff thing tonight,'' Kershaw said. ''My stuff wasn't great. I just kind of had to grind through it a little bit.'' Most pitchers would love to be off the way he was. Kershaw has won three straight starts, posting a 1.61 ERA with three walks and 25 Ks.
4/26/2017 Buster Posey, SF, C
Posey went 2 for 3 with a walk and drove in the Giants' only run in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Analysis: Since missing a week for a concussion, Posey has hit safely in all seven games while batting .379.
4/26/2017 German Márquez, Col, P
Marquez gave up eight runs and nine hits in four innings of the Rockies' 15-12 loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Analysis: This was Marquez's first start of 2017 after he made three late last season. Don't expect many more if he pitches like this again.
4/26/2017 Adrián González, LAD, 1B
Gonzalez was the only Dodger with an extra-base hit Tuesday and it was a big one, an RBI double in a 2-1 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Gonzalez has five RBIs in his last six games after driving in just four runs through his first 15 games. However, he remains without a homer, remaining stuck on 308 for his career.
4/26/2017 DJ LeMahieu, Col, 2B
LeMahieu went 3 for 4 and scored twice in the Rockies' 15-12 loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Analysis: In 21 games, he's collected multiple hits nine times. Pretty good for a guy who's only hitting .295.
4/26/2017 Charlie Blackmon, Col, CF
Blackmon went 3 for 5 with a homer and three RBIs in the Rockies' 15-12 loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Analysis: Blackmon has homered in four of his last five games, going 9 for 21 with 12 RBIs.
4/26/2017 Yasiel Puig, LAD, RF
Puig went 1 for 3 with an RBI single and a walk in Tuesday's 2-1 win at San Francisco.

Analysis: It was Puig's first RBI in nine games, a span in which he's batting .133 (4 for 30). The last five have come on the road, where Puig is batting .175 without a homer and one RBI. The Dodgers play two more in San Francisco before a six-game stretch at home, where Puig has hit .333 with four homers and 11 RBIs.
4/26/2017 Daniel Murphy, Was, 2B
Murphy had a big night, tying a career best by driving in five runs with three hits in the Nationals' 15-12 win in Denver.

Analysis: Murphy had 10 RBIs in his first 16 games and has nine in his last three.
4/26/2017 Trea Turner, Was, SS
Turner hit for the third cycle in Nationals history and drove in a career-high seven runs, helping Washington to a 15-12 win over the Colorado Rockies on a frigid Tuesday night.

Analysis: The shortstop had a single in the first, a two-run double in the second, a two-run homer in the sixth and a bases-loaded triple in the seventh. It was the first cycle by the Nationals since Cristian Guzman on Aug. 28, 2008.
4/26/2017 Brandon Crawford, SF, SS
Crawford strained his groin rounding first base after an eighth-inning single Tuesday and had to leave the game.

Analysis: Crawford is likely to have an MRI exam before he leaves to attend the funeral of his sister-in-law, who recently died of an asthma attack. He is expected to be placed on the bereavement list and miss three games. ''It just felt tight. I didn't feel a pop or anything like that so from what I hear that's good news,'' Crawford said.
4/26/2017 Jonathan Villar, Mil, 2B
Villar had two hits and four RBIs in the Brewers' 9-1 win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Analysis: Villar was hitting just .138 in his first 18 games, but he's 8 for 25 over his last six.
4/26/2017 Travis Shaw, Mil, 3B
Shaw went 3 for 5 in the Brewers' 9-1 win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Analysis: Shaw is 11 for 29 with three homers and 10 RBIs over his last seven games.
4/26/2017 Hernán Pérez, Mil, 3B
Perez had a pair of RBI triples and finished 3 for 3 in the Brewers' 9-1 win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Analysis: After a slow start to the season, Perez is finding his groove at the plate. Perez has raised his batting average from .179 to .261 over the course of two games by going 5 for 7 with a double, two triples, two home runs and seven RBIs.
