Schwarber went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI and a walk in Monday's 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh. Schwarber was responsible for two of his team's three runs in this one. He singled home a run in the bottom of the third and mashed his 13th homer of the season in the seventh to put his team ahead. Schwarber has now homered three times in the last two games and appears to be seeing the ball better at the dish after heading into Monday's contest just 7-for-37 through his first 11 games of the month.
Schwarber went 2-for-4 with two home runs, four RBI, one walk and one strikeout in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Giants. Serving as Washington's leadoff hitter for the second time in three days, Schwarber got off to a hot start to the series finale by blasting home runs in both of his first two at-bas. The 28-year-old is now slashing .222/.314/.445 with 12 home runs and 31 RBI this season, and he looks like he'll stick as the Nationals' primary table setter against right-handed pitching for the time being.
Schwarber went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in the 2-0 win over the Giants in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader. Schwarber opened the bottom of the first inning with a long ball off Kevin Gausman, ultimately providing Washington with all the offense it would need in the first half of the twin bill. The long ball broke an 11-game streak without a homer for the outfielder and was his first time leaving the yard since he moved into his new role as the leadoff hitter earlier this week.
Schwarber is batting leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Rays. Per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com, this will be the outfielder's first time batting atop the Nationals' lineup, though he did do so previously with the Cubs. He'll look to break a 14-at-bat hitless skid in his new role.
Schwarber (knee) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's 2-1 win over Philadelphia. Schwarber entered the weekend questionable to play after suffering from a stiff knee Thursday, but he was able to return Friday. That said, it wouldn't be shocking to see him get a game off in the near future. His 0-fer effort Friday snapped the 28-year-old's six-game hitting streak.
