Escobar isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against Miami. Escobar will be out of the lineup for the first time since April 4 after he went 3-for-11 with a double, two RBI, a walk and a strikeout in the last three games. Josh VanMeter will start at second base and bat sixth.
Escobar went 2-for-4 with a double, a RBI and a run scored in the 7-2 win Friday over the Rockies. Escobar was a part of the two-out hit parade in the third inning against Jon Gray. Friday was his second two-hit game in a row and he has hit safely in 10 of his last 12 games. The 32-year-old leads the Diamondbacks in home runs (7), runs (19) and OPS (.847).
Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the 7-0 win Sunday against the Braves. Escobar homered in the third inning off Drew Smyly in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader. He also provided a hit and an RBI in Game 1. Sunday marked his seventh home run, tying him for first in the majors. The 32-year-old is slashing .241/.312/.542 with 14 RBI and 15 runs scored.
Escobar went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Nationals. Escobar took Erick Fedde deep in the sixth inning, bringing the Diamondbacks within two runs. It was the sixth home run and 10th RBI in nine games for the infielder, who has turned around a 1-for-21 start to the season.
Escobar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Thursday's 11-6 win over the Nationals. Escobar delivered the second of back-to-back home runs in the first inning off Patrick Corbin. After a very slow start to the season, the infielder has multiple hits in five of his last six games, and his 11 runs scored rank among the top 10 in the league. Escobar's hitting has given Diamondbacks fans something to cheer about in an otherwise stagnant offense.
