Lopes, who went 1-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in an extra-innings loss to the Padres on Sunday, is hitting .350 (7-for-20) with four two-baggers, three RBI, one walk and four runs in seven September games.

Lopes returned to the active roster last Monday to serve as the 29th man for a doubleheader against the Athletics that day, and he has stuck around and started on four subsequent occasions. The 26-year-old utility man is slashing a modest .258/.299/.375 across 127 plate appearances in 2020, but 12 of his 31 hits have gone for extra bases.
