Edwin Encarnacion regained his share of the AL lead in home runs with his 26th, a walk-off, three-run shot to beat the Brewers 7-4 on Wednesday. He finished the night 2-for-4 with three RBI, a run scored and a walk.
In addition to the late-game heroics and the recapturing of the league-lead in home runs, Encarnacion also extended his current hit-streak to 10 games. What more is there left to say about the season he has put together so far, other than to mention his .281/.370/.603 slash line, his MLB-leading 69 RBI and his 56 runs scored? He is obviously a must-own, must-start in all formats.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
