Pollock went 2-for-5 with a double, triple, two RBI and a run Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 11-8 win over the Rockies. Pollock's triple was the fourth of the night for the Diamondbacks and provided his team with a pair of important insurance runs in the high-scoring affair. The outfielder appears to be heating up at the right time after struggling through a large portion of the second half, as he's batting .317 with four home runs, 11 runs and nine RBI over his last 11 games, dating back to the regular season.
Pollock went 2-for-3 with a walk in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Royals. Pollock's .267 average on the season has rendered him somewhat of a disappointment after he delivered .300-plus marks in his last two healthy campaigns in 2014 and 2015, but he's at least rewarding fantasy owners who have been patient with him with a massive September. Over his 23 games this month, Pollock is hitting .276/.357/.517 with four home runs, 19 RBI, 15 runs and three steals.
Pollock went 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI in Tuesday's 11-4 win over the Giants. After experimenting with Pollock as the club's No. 7 hitter in the last couple weeks, manager Torey Lovullo seems to have settled on using the center field in the two hole, which Pollock has occupied in three of his last four starts. The benefits of batting in front of Paul Goldschmidt and J.D. Martinez were certainly apparent Tuesday, as Pollock scored twice to equal his run output from his previous four starts combined. Though Lovullo benched most of his regulars Monday after the Diamondbacks clinched a playoff berth a day earlier, it's not expected that Pollock or the team's other lineup mainstays will be rested for the remaining four contests of the regular season.
Pollock is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants. The Diamondbacks clinched home-field advantage for the NL wild-card game with Sunday's win, so Pollock will get Monday off as Arizona gives its starters some rest. Rey Fuentes will draw the start in center field in his place.
Pollock went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs in Wednesday's 13-7 win over the Padres. Petco Park has been a tough environment for hitters in the past, but it didn't hinder Pollock one bit during the Diamondbacks' three-game series loss. The outfielder reached base eight times during the series and collected four extra-base hits, including three home runs.
