Marte went 2-for-4 with a walk, a triple, a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Giants. The 25-year-old homered for the second straight day and produced his sixth multi-hit performance in the last nine games. The hot streak has pushed Marte's slash line to .270/.327/.515, to go along with 11 homers, three steals, 31 runs and 36 RBI through 51 games.
Marte went 3-for-7 with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 18-2 victory over the Giants. Marte put the exclamation mark on a dominant win for the Diamondbacks by adding three more runs to the scoreboard with a blast to left center in the seventh inning. The long ball was Marte's 10th in what continues to be a power surge of a season. Overall, he's batting .265/.321/.490 with 35 RBI, 29 runs scored and three stolen bases.
Marte went 2-for-4 with a double and knocked in a run in Friday's 7-0 win over the Giants. Marte, who batted fifth Friday, leads the Diamondbacks with 31 RBI. He's been all over the batting order but to better take advantage of his .571 slugging with runners in scoring position, the Diamondbacks may want to bat him fifth or sixth in the order. In that alignment, he can take advantage of Arizona's best on-base guys placed in the upper half of the order. Nineteen of Marte's 31 RBI have come in the 23 games he's batted fifth or sixth.
Marte is not in the lineup Thursday against the Braves. Marte has started the past 14 games for Arizona, slashing .269/.406/.635 with five homers, a stolen base and an 11:9 BB:K over that stretch. With the 25-year-old Marte situated on the bench Thursday, Wilmer Flores is starting at the keystone and hitting sixth.
Marte will start at second base and bat fifth Wednesday against the Rays. Marte has hit either first or second in the order in each of his past five starts, but he'll move into the heart of the lineup to provide the Diamondbacks with an infusion of power as top slugger Christian Walker rests. With nine home runs through Arizona's first 36 contests, Marte is well on his way to surpassing last season's career-high total of 14 long balls.
