Marte went 1-for-4 with an RBI during Sunday's loss to the Dodgers. Marte is having decent success through his first 15 games, slashing .270/.303/.397 with seven RBI and six extra-base hits. He'll look to extend his hitting streak to 10 games Tuesday as the Diamondbacks start a three-game bout with the Giants.
Marte went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Friday's 8-7 win over the Dodgers. Marte's hitting streak now stands at eight games, with the infielder having scored five runs over the past four contests. The Diamondbacks seem to have committed to Marte as their No. 2 hitter, so his run-scoring opportunities should remain plentiful while he slots in directly in front of A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt in most contests.
Marte went 3-for-4 with a double, a pair of runs and an RBI in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Giants. Marte entered the series finale riding a six-game hit streak, but with no multi-hit efforts mixed into those contests, he had managed just a .240 average during that span. He managed to break out Wednesday, reaching base three times while scoring more than one run in a game for the first time all season. Manager Torey Lovullo appears to have settled on Marte as the club's No. 2 hitter against both right- and left-handers, so more run-scoring opportunities should come so long as he continues to get on base at a respectable clip.
Marte went 1-for-4 in Sunday's 4-1 win over St. Louis. Marte has notched a hit in each of his past four games, although he's slashing just .211/.231/.342 through his first nine games played. His numbers figure to go up once he notches more at-bats. Marte finished the 2017 season batting .260 with five home runs and 18 RBI in 73 games.
Marte went 3-for-7 with a pair of triples, a run and an RBI in Monday's 8-7 win over the Dodgers in 15 innings. Marte did most of his damage early in the contest, recording the triples in back-to-back at-bats in the third and fourth inning off Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. Perhaps more notable than Marte's solid showing at the plate was the fact that he was deployed in the two hole for the second time this season when the Diamondbacks have opposed left-handed starters. Look for Marte to again occupy prime real estate in the lineup Tuesday when the Diamondbacks face southpaw Clayton Kershaw.
