The Los Angeles Angels’ Jared Walsh led all hitters last night with a 3.000. In 5 plate appearances, he had 4 hits including a home run. He also had 1 walk. The Angels beat the Houston Astros in a come-from-behind win thanks to a 4-run sixth.
Arizona Diamondbacks’ Luke Weaver put in an efficient performance last night going 6 innings with 6 Ks. When he left the game in the 6th inning, he had a 5-0 shutout going. He was pulled after 75 pitches.
The trend is your friend, as they say. So who’s got the hot bat on Tuesdays so far this season? That honor goes to Texas Rangers second baseman, Nick Solak. He’s hitting a respectable .271 with an .808 OPS. He has struggled of late, however. In his last 7 games, he’s hitting .207 thanks to a 6-for-29 cold streak. Ronald Acuna is a close second. Unfortunately, his struggles stretch back two-weeks. He’s gone 14-for-78. That’s .179 if you’re keeping count. Choose your fantasy teams accordingly.
