Solano isn't starting Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Solano went 0-for-3 during Sunday's matinee, and he'll take a seat for the second game. Wilmer Flores will take over at second base.
Solano went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners. Solano has now registered two three-hit performances in two of his last three games and seems to be heating up at the plate, hitting safely in five of seven contests this month and slashing .462/.500/.808 in that stretch. He also has six extra-base hits across that span after racking up seven during the entire month of August.
Solano went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer, a double, and a walk in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Solano needed only a triple to complete the cycle but still enjoyed a perfect day at the dish Sunday. His two-run shot in the sixth inning proved to be the go-ahead knock in the Giants win. The 34-year-old owns a terrific .344/.388/.516 slash line with 27 RBI and 16 extra-base hits across 139 plate appearances this season.
Solano is not in the lineup Saturday against Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Solano hits the bench after starting four straight games. Wilmer Flores takes over at second base in his absence.
Solano went 4-for-6 with a pair of doubles, two runs and six RBI in Tuesday's 23-5 win over Colorado. Prior to Tuesday, no team in MLB history had ever seen three of its players drive in six runs in one game. Solano was part of the history-making trio (along with Alex Dickerson and Brandon Crawford) who changed that when he doubled to left field in the eighth inning to collect his fifth and six RBI of the contest. The 32-year-old pushed his already-robust .327 average to .345 with the memorable performance. He also upped his season RBI total to 24.
