Adam Eaton Has Strong Series

Eaton along with Abreu, had a strong series against the Marlins. On Friday, Eaton collected four hits against Miami. Despite not recording a hit on Saturday, Eaton opened Sunday’s game with a solo home run. Eaton collected three hits on Sunday to improve his batting average to .277 for the season.

Although Eaton had a good series offensively against the Marlins, he also had a nice play to end the game on Saturday. With the Marlins trailing 8-7 with two outs in the ninth inning, Giancarlo Stanton attempted to get into scoring position. Stanton hit a bloop single which Eaton couldn’t catch, but was thrown out at second base by Eaton. Stanton attempted to advance to second base, but he strained his groin before reaching the base.

With the outfield assist, Eaton increased his total to 17 outfield assists on the season. Eaton leads all outfielders in this category.
