Lamb is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Reds. Lamb will get just his first day off since July 5, as the player with the No. 4 OPS in the National League (.970) will take a seat against southpaw Brandon Finnegan. Brandon Drury will get the call at third base in Lamb's stead, as manager Chip Hale will use a lineup composed entirely of right-handed batters.
Lamb went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's win over the Dodgers. Lamb singled in a run and came around to score as things got started in the first inning, and he later launched a 430-foot blast to center to add to the lead in what was an eventual one-run win. The slugger terrorized the Dodgers over the weekend series, going 7-for-12 with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored, and he continues to prove his worth during this breakout campaign.
Lamb finished 3-for-5 with a triple, a double, an RBI and a run scored during Saturday's come-from-behind victory over the Dodgers. Lamb played a crucial role in the comeback, as he laced an RBI double to center, tying the game in the ninth inning, before leading off the 12th with a triple and coming around to score the winning run. The breakout season continues from the 25-year-old, who now boasts an impressive OPS of 1.000 on the dot.
Lamb went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, his 20th, in Wednesday's loss to the Padres. Lamb was named an All-Star Game Final Vote candidate earlier in the week, and he's certainly deserving of going to the game. His 20 home runs are tied for fifth in the National League, and they're twice as many as he hit in 2014 and 2015 combined. Lamb is on pace to hit 37 home runs this season and could make a run at 40 if he continues to improve against lefty pitching.
Lamb went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer Sunday against the Giants. Lamb's 19th blast of the year came in the eighth inning and tied the game at four in a game the Diamondbacks would go on to lose. He's now homered in four of his last five games to bring his slugging percentage to .607 on the year.
