• Cracks three hits in loss
    Bell went 3-for-4 with two doubles and one run in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Phillies in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series.

    Advice: Bell has been known to do damage against the Phillies in the regular season, slashing .357/.455/.536 in eight games with one home run, three runs and four RBI. He continued that trend into the postseason Tuesday with his two doubles, one against Zack Wheeler in the seventh that would allow him to score the only run for the Marlins, and one against Craig Kimbrel in the ninth where he would be left stranded in the loss.

  • Nabs two bags in win
    Turner went 2-for-3 with one walk and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Marlins in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series.

    Advice: Turner entered the contest with 30 stolen bases across 155 games in the regular season and Tuesday marked his sixth multi-steal game of the year.

  • Locks down postseason save
    Kimbrel allowed one hit in a scoreless inning of work to finish out the save in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Marlins in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series.

    Advice: Kimbrel gave up a double to Josh Bell to put a run in scoring position, but managed to close the door on the Marlin's hopes of coming back in Game 1. In September, Kimbrel had blown two of four save opportunities in 12 innings of work, in spite of his low 1.50 ERA in that stretch. However, the veteran right-hander is now a perfect eight-for-eight in save chances in the postseason, with a 3.96 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 27 strikeouts across 25 career innings.

  • Cedes three runs in loss
    Luzardo allowed three runs on eight hits across four innings, taking the loss in Tuesday's 4-1 defeat against the Phillies in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series. He struck out five.

    Advice: Luzardo was knocked around by the Phillies lineup early and often, giving up a hit to every batter besides Harper at some point in his four innings of work. The pressure of the home crowd may have gotten to him since he allowed two wild pitches in the contest, one of which set up an RBI single by Christian Pache in the fifth inning. After Tuesday's outing, Luzardo is up to a 6.75 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 16 strikeouts across 14.2 career postseason innings. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 1:47 pm
  • Fans eight to earn win
    Wheeler allowed one run on five hits across 6.2 innings to secure the win in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Marlins in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series. He struck out eight.

    Advice: Wheeler was dominant in this outing as he made quick work of the Marlins lineup, racking up eighteen whiffs in the process. His sole mistake was allowing an RBI single to Bryan de la Cruz in the seventh inning that was set up by a defensive miscue as Wheeler forgot to cover first base. The right-hander thrives under pressure as he now has a mint 2.55 ERA and 0.73 WHIP with 41 strikeouts across 42.1 career postseason innings. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 1:29 pm
  • Officially starting Game 2
    Peralta will start Game 2 of the Brewers' NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Advice: With Brandon Woodruff nursing a shoulder injury and out indefinitely, Peralta will be bumped up to start Wednesday. Peralta put up a 3.38 ERA and 0.83 WHIP through 26.2 innings across his final five starts of the regular season, though he surrendered four runs in just three frames during his most recent outing.

  • Claims first postseason win
    Lopez earned the win in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series, allowing one run on five hits and two walks across 5.2 innings. He struck out three.

    Advice: Lopez had a solid outing in his second career postseason start, mainly relying upon the defense behind him to take care of a bevy of outs on contact. Things began to break down a bit for the right-hander in the sixth inning after allowing an RBI single to Kevin Kiermaier but he was pulled with the lead intact. He had a 3.68 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 38 strikeouts across 29.1 innings in September heading into the contest. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 1:03 pm
  • Smacks two home runs in win
    Lewis went 2-for-3 with two home runs and a walk in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series.

    Advice: Lewis provided all the offense in this contest, as he had Kevin Gausman's number from the start and made sure to take advantage in both the first and third innings. The rookie third baseman had been on a power binge of sorts heading into the postseason, with five home runs in his 15 games to close out the regular season. During that span, he slashed .315/.422/.630 with 12 runs and 19 RBI. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 12:59 pm

  • Punches out two in save
    Duran closed out the save in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series, allowing one walk in a scoreless inning. He struck out two.

    Advice: The young right-hander led the team with 27 saves in 59 regular season games and they unsurprisingly turned to him again in the ninth inning to close out Tuesday's win. Duran was making his first career appearance as a closer in the postseason. Also foreseeable were his two strikeouts, as Duran carried a 12.1 K/9 across 62.1 innings during the season.
