Brandon Belt picked up a pair of doubles with a run scored and an RBI over five at-bats in Tuesday's win against the Pirates.

Belt has three doubles over the past two games and nine of his season's 23 doubles in the month of July. He might be hitting just .237 overall, but he is making his hits count. Unfortunately for fantasy owners he has managed just seven RBI in July, his worst of any month in 2017.
Jul 26 - 4:35 AM

Chris Stratton allowed two earned runs, six hits and a walk with four strikeouts across four innings of relief to earn a save Tuesday against the Pirates.

Stratton was awarded the save despite an 11-3 score, as he worked three or more innings to close out the game. There aren't many old-fashioned saves these days, but Stratton joined Josh Ravin of the Dodgers in securing the rare save on Tuesday. More importantly, he gave his overworked bullpen mates a much-needed rest.
Jul 26 - 4:31 AM

Madison Bumgarner allowed one earned run, six hits and a walk with four strikeouts across five innings to nail down his first win of the season Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Bumgarner has had a strange and bumpy road this season. Normally his first victory comes in the first or second start of a new campaign, but he dropped his first four decisions and also missed two months due to a shoulder injury. He is starting to pitch like his normal ace-like self, posting a 1-1 record and 3.92 ERA over three outings since returning from the 10-day disabled list. He is likely to continue trending in a positive direction as he builds up his stamina.
Jul 26 - 4:29 AM

David Freese posted a single, double and RBI across five at-bats in Tuesday's game in San Francisco.

Freese has hit safely in a season-high seven consecutive outings, going 10-for-24 (.417) with three runs scored, a home run, five RBI, five walks and just five strikeouts. His previous long was a four-game hitting streak, accomplished on three different occasions, so this is uncharted territory in 2017 for the hot corner veteran.
Jul 26 - 4:23 AM

Jameson Taillon was smashed for 10 runs - nine earned - and nine hits with a walk and just one strikeout across three innings in a loss Tuesday at San Francisco.

It was a nightmare outing for Taillon, as he threw just 43 of his 70 pitches for strikes. He was able to keep the ball in the park, but when he did throw strikes he hung them over the plate and they were smashed into corners or gaps. He allowed three doubles and a triple among his nine hits allowed. He'll look to bounce back next Tuesday against Cincinnati.
Jul 26 - 4:17 AM

Yasiel Puig collected three singles with a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's win against the Twins.

Puig has back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time since May 28-29, and just the third time this season. After a 3-for-22 run from July 15-23, Puig is starting to show some signs of life again at the plate. For some batters, the All-Star break is a godsend. For others, it's an interruption and it takes a while to get back on track. Chalk up Puig for the latter.
Jul 26 - 4:11 AM

Chris Taylor picked up a pair of doubles with three RBI in Tuesday's victory against Minnesota.

Taylor has been on fire, posting four straight multi-hit games, while collecting two or more hits across nine of his past 11 outings. He is hitting an incredible .523 (23-for-44) with five doubles, three triples and two homers to increase his average from .285 to .321 just since July 9.
Jul 26 - 4:07 AM

Josh Ravin worked three scoreless and hitless innings in Tuesday's game against the Twins, finishing things out for the save.

It's a rarity to see a three-inning save these days, but he certainly deserved it in the 6-2 win. He threw 22 of his 33 pitches for strikes, allowing just one walk. He is still likely to work in middle relief and low-leverage situations, but with Kenley Jansen needing a rest and the bullpen a bit tired, manager Dave Roberts trusted Ravin to finish out the win.
