Justin Bour went 2-for-4 with an RBI single Friday against the Phillies.

Bour came into Friday's action just 3-for-18 (.167) with six strikeouts against left-handed pitching this season. However, with Jeff Baker (intercostal) sidelined, it looks like he's going to get every opportunity to be the regular first baseman.

Justin Bour went 3-for-4 with three RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Bour doubled in a pair in the fifth and plated another run in the seventh with a single. The 27-year-old continues to play at first base regularly over Mike Morse and continues to hit, as he's now up to four homers and 14 RBI over his last 12 games.
Jul 12 - 4:07 PM

Justin Bour homered for the fourth straight game Friday, with his solo shot proving to be the winning run in a victory over the Cubs.

Making a bid for National League Player of the Week honors, Bour put a Jason Hammel offering into the basket in right field in the sixth inning. He also singled and drew a walk, reaching base in three of four plate appearances. Michael Morse (back) is due back soon, but he might have a better shot to play in the outfield with the way Bour is going.
Jul 3 - 5:18 PM

Justin Bour went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Bour's three-run homer off of Matt Cain in the fifth inning jumped the Marlins from a 3-2 deficit to a 5-3 lead. They would go on to win 5-4. The home run was his ninth of the season and he pushed his season RBI total to an even 20. Bour's been on a tear recently, having homered in three straight games and driven in seven over that same time span. He's hitting a healthy .263/.340/.496 this season, though the return of Michael Morse figures to at least somewhat chip into his at-bats.
Jul 2 - 3:03 PM

Justin Bour hit a three-run homer off Santiago Casilla in the bottom of the ninth to give the Marlins a 6-5 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Comebacks don't come much quicker than the Marlins' did tonight, as the two hitters immediately preceding Bour delivered singles. Bour walked it off from there, giving the Marlins three runs on 11 pitches from Casilla. It's Bour's eighth homer of the year. He's expected to lose playing time pretty soon with Michael Morse coming back, but the Marlins need as much power as they can get, even if it means giving Morse some time in left.
Jul 1 - 10:19 PM

Justin Bour hit his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

The solo homer was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. He's now got seven homers in 50 games with the Marlins. The 27-year-old is hitting .254/.331/.454 overall.

Jun 6 - 1:23 PM

Justin Bour hit his fifth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday.

Bour, who finished 2-for-4 on the afternoon, slugged a game-tying solo home run in the sixth inning against Bartolo Colon. He's getting regular at-bats now that Michael Morse is on the disabled list and has done nothing but hit, carrying a .369/.414/.646 triple-slash line with five home runs and 10 RBI in 70 plate appearances. Bour won't maintain this level of production over a larger sample size, but he's worth riding in deeper formats for now.
