7/25/2017 Joc Pederson, LAD, CF
Joc Pederson went 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Monday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4. The homer was his 10th of the season. He ended the game with a .238 batting average.

Analysis: Though Pederson helped spark a Dodgers' rally with his solo blast off Bartolo Colon that tied the game at 2-2 in the fifth inning, the hit was just his second in 20 at-bats over an eight-game stretch. On the positive side, the talented center fielder now has four homers and nine RBIs over his last eight interleague games.
7/25/2017 Jason Castro, Min, C
Jason Castro went 2 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI Monday as the Minnesota Twins lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4. He ended the game with a .223 batting average.

Analysis: Though Castro owners know not to expect a high average, he has gone 5 for 16 with four doubles in five interleague games this season.
7/25/2017 Corey Seager, LAD, SS
Corey Seager went 1 for 4 Monday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4. He ended the game with a .293 batting average.
7/25/2017 Brian Dozier, Min, 2B
Brian Dozier went 0 for 5 Monday as the Minnesota Twins fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4. He ended the game with a .249 batting average.
7/25/2017 Eddie Rosario, Min, LF
Eddie Rosario went 3 for 4 with two doubles, a home run and three RBIs Monday as the Minnesota Twins lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4. The homer was his 11th of the season. Rosario scored twice. He ended the game with a .296 batting average.

Analysis: Rosario has been locked in during a three-game tear in which he's 7 for 11 with five extra-base hits, four RBIs and four runs scored. He's actually been going well at the plate for quite some time, as his .371 average since June 13 is fifth-best in the AL during that period.
7/25/2017 Robbie Grossman, Min, LF
Robbie Grossman went 1 for 2 Monday as the Minnesota Twins fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4. He ended the game with a .252 batting average.
7/25/2017 R.A. Dickey, Atl, P
R.A. Dickey fell to 6-7, allowing four runs on five hits and five walks in 3.2 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 10-2 on Monday. Dickey struck out four, ending the game with a 4.31 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Dickey began July with three straight very good starts but wound up with a no-decision in each. He's since dropped two in a row while permitting eight runs across 10 2/3 innings. The 42-year-old knuckleballer next faces a Phillies team he held to one run and three hits over seven sharp innings in a win on June 8.
7/25/2017 Zack Greinke, Ari, P
Zack Greinke improved to 12-4, allowing two runs on five hits in 8.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Atlanta Braves 10-2 on Monday. Greinke struck out six, ending the game with a 2.92 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: After producing very inconsistent results at Chase Field a year ago, Greinke has been dominant in his home park during his second season as a Diamondback. The standout right-hander is now 10-0 with a 2.39 ERA in 12 starts there in 2017, while he's won just twice in eight road outings. His next assignment will come away from home against the Cardinals on Saturday.
7/25/2017 Nick Markakis, Atl, RF
Nick Markakis went 0 for 3 Monday as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 10-2. He ended the game with a .274 batting average.
7/25/2017 A.J. Pollock, Ari, CF
A.J. Pollock went 3 for 5 with two doubles, a home run and four RBIs Monday as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Atlanta Braves 10-2. The homer was his fifth of the season. Pollock scored twice. He ended the game with a .303 batting average.

Analysis: As if Pollock's 11 hits in 22 at-bats over his last six games aren't impressive enough, eight of those hits have gone for extra bases and he's scored nine times during that stretch. The standout center fielder has homered in three of his past five home games as well and is batting .345 with 10 steals in 28 contests at Chase Field this season.
7/25/2017 Chris Owings, Ari, SS
Chris Owings went 0 for 5 Monday as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Atlanta Braves 10-2. He ended the game with a .272 batting average.

Analysis: Owings fell to 0 for 22 over his last six games, though he really hasn't hit well for close to two months now. The infielder is batting just .220 in 42 games since June 1 to drop his season average from .316 to .272.

Analysis: Cain has actually been decent at home, posting a 3.25 ERA, but he's been an outright disaster on the road with an 8.14 ERA.
