David Murphy went 5-for-6 with three doubles, five RBI, and two runs scored as the Indians beat the Blue Jays 15-4 on Wednesday.
After going 1-for-15 over his last four games, Murphy posted his best performance of the season, finishing with more hits on Wednesday night than he has in his previous eight starts. He is now sitting on a .273 average with two homers and 24 RBI in his first season with the Tribe as he continues to dominate right-handed opposition (.307 BA). There is a chance he is still sitting on the waiver wire after a slow start, so if in search of outfield depth Murphy is a solid add while hitting at a high clip. ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
