Marte went 2-for-4 with four RBI and a strikeout in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

Marte came up with a big hit in the third inning, breaking a 2-2 tie with a two-run triple to right field before adding a couple of insurance runs with a two-out, two-run single in the eighth. It was a much-needed breakout performance at the plate for Marte, who was informed by manager Torey Lovullo recently that Daniel Descalso would act as team's primary starter at the keystone down the stretch. Marte, who is slashing .250/.345/.333 with six RBI since the start of September, might have given Lovullo reason to reconsider the demotion.
