• Earns win
    Moll (2-3) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over two scoreless innings to earn the win over Cleveland on Tuesday.

    Advice: Moll and others in the bullpen combined for six scoreless innings, giving the offense a chance to overcome a disastrous outing from starter Hunter Greene. Moll has not allowed a run over his last 19 appearances (18 innings) and sports a shiny 0.76 ERA across 23.2 innings since being acquired by the Reds at the trade deadline.

  • Having monster finish
    Friedl went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run, and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 11-7 win over the Guardians.

    Advice: Friedl homered for a fourth consecutive game and extended a hit streak to seven contests, during which he's 10-for-25 with seven walks, five extra-base hits, eight RBI, two steals and six runs scored. The outfielder, who had slumped since the All-Star break, has bounced back in September just as he reached a career high in plate appearances. Friedl's slashing .348/.471/.768 in 23 games this month.

  • Homers keep coming
    Encarnacion-Strand went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 11-7 win over Cleveland.

    Advice: Encarnacion-Strand smacked a two-run home run as part of the Reds' three-run third inning, which helped the team survive an early onslaught by the Guardians. The rookie is making a case as the team's best hitter down the stretch. The home run was Encarnacion-Strand's sixth in the last eight games, during which he's slashing .367/.406/.967 with 12 RBI. For the season, he has 12 homers over 59 games. Rotowire.com 35 minutes ago
  • Contributes to comeback win
    Maile went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 11-7 win over the Guardians.

    Advice: Maile and the rest of the lineup overcame a short outing from starter Hunter Greene (three IP, seven runs, three HR). The journeyman catcher belted a solo home run in the third third inning then lashed a two-out, two-run single in the fifth which plated the game-winning run. Maile has six home runs, 25 RBI and a .723 OPS over 75 games. Rotowire.com 42 minutes ago
  • Steals base in win
    Peterson started at third base and went 0-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's 15-4 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Peterson registered his career-high 14th steal during Arizona's six-run fifth inning. The lefty hitter is in a rotation at third base with Evan Longoria and Emmanuel Rivera, normally getting starts against right-handers but not as part of a strict platoon. Rotowire.com Today, 3:56 am

  • Returns to starting lineup
    Marte started at second base and went 2-for-4 with walk, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Tuesday's 15-4 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Marte did not play Sunday's game due to an illness and was held out of the starting lineup Monday, although he entered that game as a pinch hitter. He's hit in five straight games when starting, going 10-for-20 with three home runs, a double, six RBI and seven runs scored. Rotowire.com Today, 3:48 am
  • Three-hit effort in loss
    Pena went 3-for-4 in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: All three of Pena's hits were singles. The shortstop had endured a sophomore slump for part of the campaign, but he's hitting .297 (27-for-91) in September. That's lifted his season batting average to .264 with a .707 OPS, 10 home runs, 13 stolen bases, 51 RBI and 81 runs scored over 146 contests. He's locked in for a starting role, though he still hits in the bottom third of the lineup regularly. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Tallies three hits
    Altuve went 3-for-5 with one RBI in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Altuve was productive from atop the order, but the Astros couldn't get him home. This was his seventh multi-hit effort in his last 10 games, and he's hitting .386 (17-for-44) in that span. The second baseman is up to a .315/.399/.534 slash line with 17 home runs, 51 RBI, 75 runs scored and 13 stolen bases over 86 contests this season. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Handed fifth loss
    Javier (9-5) allowed four runs (three earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out six over 4.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Javier was tagged for two runs in the third inning and two more before his exit in the fifth. This was his fourth straight outing of no more than five innings, and he's gone six starts without a win. The right-hander is at a 4.67 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 155:60 K:BB through 156 innings over 30 starts this season. Javier may not start again in the regular season since the Astros have just four games left, though he'd be available on regular rest by the last game of this weekend's series versus Arizona if Houston manages to secure a playoff spot before then.
