Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two stolen bases against the Brewers on Friday.
While the preseason hype machine had Billy Hamilton earmarked for the stolen base crown, it's been Dee Gordon who has stolen the show. His batting average, as expected, dropped form where it was early on in the season, but he's slashing .293/.339/.387 on the season and these two stolen bases give him a major-league leading 56 stolen bases on the year. We're not saying Billy Hamilton won't eventually become the stolen base king, but Gordon has been so much more valuable this season, especially when you consider where he was drafted this season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
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
