Piscotty took Matt Shoemaker deep in the second inning with Matt Olson aboard, putting his only at-bat of the game to good use. The 27-year-old posted career bests in home runs (27) and RBI (88) in 2018, and he'll hope to continue contributing in Wednesday's wild-card showdown against the Yankees.

Matt Joyce will start in right field and hit sixth in place of Piscotty.
