Riley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Riley went yard in the third inning off Merrill Kelly for his 31st home run of the year and his second in as many games. The 24-year has made a late case for himself in the National League MVP race, as he's slashing .330/.364/.544 with nine homers, 33 RBI, 30 runs scored and 7:48 BB:K in 45 games since the trade deadline passed. Riley now needs just five more RBI to become the first Atlanta third baseman to have a 30-double, 30-homer and 100-RBI season since Chipper Jones in 2001.
