9/26/2016 Nolan Arenado, Col, 3B
Arenado was 0 for 2 with a pair of walks in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Analysis: The Rockies begin a series with the Giants on Tuesday, and Arenado is batting .328 with five homers, nine doubles and 22 RBIs in the season series. He has doubled twice in four at-bats against Matt Moore, the scheduled starter for the opener.
9/26/2016 DJ LeMahieu, Col, 2B
LeMahieu singled twice Sunday to raise his average to .350.

Analysis: LeMahieu has a slight lead over Washington's Daniel Murphy (.347) in the race for the NL batting title. The Rockies second baseman has hit safely in 14 of his last 15 contests, batting .417 in that span.
9/26/2016 Justin Turner, LAD, 3B
Turner singled and doubled in Sunday's win over Colorado.

Analysis: Turner is 7 for 10 with three walks in the last three games but has little luck this season against the Padres, whom the Dodgers visit on Tuesday. In 16 meetings, Turner is batting .193, though he does have three homers and three doubles.
9/26/2016 Corey Seager, LAD, SS
Seager homered with two outs in the ninth inning Sunday off Colorado's Adam Ottavino, tying the game 3-all. It was the rookie's 190th hit of the season to go with a single in the first and triple in the seventh.

Analysis: Seager is a lock to win the NL Rookie of the Year Award, but the Padres - the team the Dodgers visit on Tuesday - have stymied the young star all season. In 16 games versus San Diego, Seager is batting .197 without a homer and 15 strikeouts while leaving 29 men on base.
9/26/2016 Brandon McCarthy, LAD, P
McCarthy came off the disabled list (right hip stiffness) Sunday to make his first start for the Dodgers since Aug. 13. He gave up two runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings, struck out six and walked one against the Rockies.

Analysis: McCarthy replaced Rich Hill, who skipped his scheduled start for precautionary reasons because of a recurrence of blisters on the index finger of his left pitching hand. McCarthy has thrown just 40 innings this season as he tries to make a case to be on the Dodgers postseason roster.
9/26/2016 Hunter Pence, SF, RF
Pence was 1 for 3 with a walk in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

Analysis: After an off day Monday, the Giants open their final homestand of the season with three against the Rockies on Tuesday. Pence is hitting .375 with a homer, five doubles and nine RBIs in 11 games against Colorado this season.
9/26/2016 Buster Posey, SF, C
Posey singled, walked and drove in two runs in Sunday's loss to San Diego.

Analysis: After an off day Monday, the Giants open their final homestand of the season with three against the Rockies on Tuesday. Posey is batting just .174 but has homered twice in seven games against Colorado this season at AT&T Park.
9/26/2016 Wil Myers, SD, 1B
Myers' RBI single in the seventh inning lifted the Padres past the Giants 4-3 on Sunday.

Analysis: Myers has hit safely in 10 of 12 games, driving in 12 over that stretch.
9/26/2016 Mookie Betts, Bos, RF
Betts extended his hitting streak to 12 games Sunday against the Rays.

Analysis: Betts is batting .444 during his run with a .528 OBP. The Red Sox open a series at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, and Betts is 9 for 21 in his last five versus the Bronx Bombers.
9/26/2016 Hanley Ramírez, Bos, 1B
Ramirez was hitless in five at-bats in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Analysis: Despite Sunday's ofer, Ramirez is still batting .355 with nine home runs and 22 RBIs in his last 19 games. The Red Sox open a series at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, and Ramirez is batting .579 with four homers, two doubles and 11 RBIs in his last five against New York.
9/26/2016 David Ortiz, Bos, DH
Ortiz had three hits and drove in the winning run with a double in the 10th inning in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Analysis: Ortiz is batting .393 with three homers and eight RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak - all on the road. The Red Sox open a series at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, and Ortiz is batting just .208 but has hit three homers in six games in the Bronx this season. It will be his final trip to Yankee Stadium. ''Playing baseball in New York is something that is very special,'' Ortiz said.
9/26/2016 Dustin Pedroia, Bos, 2B
Pedroia homered among his two hits and used nifty baserunning to score from first base on David Ortiz's double in the 10th inning and the AL East-leading Red Sox beat the Rays 3-2 on Sunday for their 11th consecutive win.

Analysis: Pedroia has homered in consecutive games giving him 15 on the season - the most since he hit 15 in 2012.
9/25/2016 Martín Maldonado, Mil, C
Maldonado returned to Milwaukee's lineup Sunday after going through concussion protocol. He took a hard foul off his mask on Thursday.

Analysis: Maldonado went 0 for 3 and is batting .146 (6 for 41) in his last 14 games.
9/25/2016 Ryan Braun, Mil, LF
In what may have been his final home game as a Brewer, Braun went 2 for 4 with a triple Sunday in a 4-2 loss to the Reds.

Analysis: The Brewers play their final six games on the road so Sunday may have marked Braun's final home game with news reports indicating he could be traded during the offseason. If that's the case, Braun would finish his Brewers career at home with 144 homers, 473 RBIs and a .302 average.
9/25/2016 Joey Votto, Cin, 1B
Votto extended his hitting streak to seven games in Sunday's win at Milwaukee.

Analysis: Votto, batting .458 during his streak, became only the second Reds player with at least 30 doubles in eight different seasons. Pete Rose had 30 doubles in 13 seasons for Cincinnati.

Maxwell had three hits Sunday.

Analysis: He was 2 for 11 in his previous five games.
