Lamb is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.
Lamb hasn't seen a day off since July 4, and has made 13 consecutive starts at third base. That streak will end Sunday, as Lamb is 0-for-6 with three strikeouts against opposing pitcher Stephen Strasburg. Ketel Marte will man the hot corner in his stead.
Lamb went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two walks and two RBI in Friday's 6-5 win over the Nationals.
After a two-homer, six-RBI performance in Thursday's series finale with the Reds, Lamb remained dialed in at the dish as the Diamondbacks returned to the friendly confines of Chase Field. Lamb's long ball - his 23rd of the season - concluded the Diamondbacks' string of back-to-back-to-back home runs off Max Scherzer in the bottom of the first inning, after David Peralta and A.J. Pollock had previously taken the Nationals ace deep. The trio of Peralta, Pollock and Lamb would remain hot all night, combining for eight of the Diamondbacks' 12 hits.
Lamb went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and six RBI in Thursday's win over the Reds.
He established a new career-high with the six RBI, and Lamb's now up to 76 RBI for the year, which puts him just 15 off his total from all of last year (91). Lamb continues to struggle in a major way against left-handed pitching -- he came into Thursday with a .139/.227/.329 line against lefties -- but he's so good against righties that it hardly matters for season-long players. The 26-year-old has been a top-five third baseman to this point.
Lamb went 1-for-3 with a triple, a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 11-2 win over the Reds.
Lamb's two-run triple in the fifth inning helped end a six-game RBI drought, his longest of the season. Mirroring a trend from last season, Lamb has followed up a stellar first three months of the campaign with a poor July. He's batting 7-for-39 (.179 average) on the month, though four of his hits have gone extra bases. The 26-year-old isn't in any danger of seeing his starting opportunities diminish, but he could be at risk of moving down from the No. 4 to No. 5 spot in the order against right-handers following the Diamondbacks' acquisition Tuesday of slugger J.D. Martinez, who is projected to serve in an everyday role in the corner outfield.
Lamb went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs during Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.
Lamb has provided elite numbers to this point with a .941 OPS with 20 homers, 67 RBI and 54 runs. The 26-year-old slugger still can't hit lefties (.153/.247/.361 in 81 plate appearances), so if his .373 BABIP against righties ticks down, his average could slip in the second half. That said, he should be able to remain an elite run-producer even with a little regression.
