Jason Heyward went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 7-3 win over the Pirates.
After going 1-for-12 over his previous three games, Heyward got back on track on Monday night, as he connected on his 10th home run of the season. He is now slashing .268/.351/.389 with 47 RBI, 60 runs scored and 14 steals, and should become more of a fantasy contributor down the stretch now that he is back atop the Braves lineup on a regular basis.

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.
