5/29/2017 Anthony Rendon, Was, 3B
Anthony Rendon went 2 for 4 Monday as the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-0. He ended the game with a .291 batting average.

Analysis: Rendon is 11 for 25 with four home runs and nine RBIs in his last seven games.
5/29/2017 Ryan Zimmerman, Was, 1B
Ryan Zimmerman went 3 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Monday as the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-0. The homer was his 14th of the season. Zimmerman scored twice. He ended the game with a .374 batting average.

Analysis: Zimmerman ended an 18-game stretch without a home run and is 10 for 22 in his last six contests.
5/29/2017 Erasmo Ramirez, TB, P
Ramirez became the first pitcher since 1984 to start a major league game the day after recording a save, then didn't make it out of the third inning Monday night. A day after pitching a perfect 15th inning on 12 pitches in the Rays' 8-6 win at Minnesota, Ramirez allowed four runs and six hits in 2 1/3 innings at Texas while throwing 31 of his 43 pitches for strikes.

Analysis: Ramirez was the first pitcher since Cleveland's Steve Farr in June 1984 to have a save one day and the start the next day for his team. The last player to record a save and then start his team's next game was Dennis Martinez, a fellow Nicaraguan who was Ramirez's childhood hero. Martinez saved a game for Montreal on July 11, 1993, and started four days later in the Expos' next game after the All-Star break.
5/29/2017 Daniel Murphy, Was, 2B
Daniel Murphy went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBIs Monday as the Washington Nationals topped the San Francisco Giants 3-0. He ended the game with a .319 batting average.

Analysis: Murphy returned to the lineup after he didn't start in the three-game series against San Diego.
5/29/2017 Christian Arroyo, SF, 3B
Christian Arroyo went 1 for 3 with a double Monday as the San Francisco Giants lost to the Washington Nationals 3-0. He ended the game with a .190 batting average.

Analysis: Arroyo ended an 0-for-19 stretch with a hit in Sunday's loss. After hitting three home runs in his first 11 games, Arroyo has none in his last 21.
5/29/2017 Buster Posey, SF, C
Buster Posey went 2 for 3 Monday as the San Francisco Giants fell to the Washington Nationals 3-0. He ended the game with a .340 batting average.
5/29/2017 Trea Turner, Was, SS
Trea Turner went 0 for 5 Monday as the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-0. He ended the game with a .241 batting average.
5/29/2017 Matt Wieters, Was, C
Matt Wieters went 1 for 4 Monday as the Washington Nationals topped the San Francisco Giants 3-0. He ended the game with a .277 batting average.

Analysis: Wieters has gone 19 games without a home run and has five RBIs in that span.
5/29/2017 Tony Watson, Pit, P
Tony Watson improved to 4-1, allowing two runs on two hits in 1.0 inning, as the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Monday. Watson struck out one, ending the game with a 4.03 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Watson has now blown two straight save chances and owns an 11.12 ERA over his last six appearances, a stretch in which opponents are hitting .370 with a pair of homers off him. If the Pirates are still in the playoff race near the end of July, they may be in the market for a closer.
5/29/2017 Trevor Williams, Pit, P
Trevor Williams allowed one run on four hits in 6.0 innings as the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Monday. Williams struck out three, ending the game with a 5.20 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: This was the best of Williams' five outings since he was put into the rotation earlier this month. The right-hander's overall numbers remain rather underwhelming, though, as he's 1-2 with a 5.11 ERA as a starter.
5/29/2017 Jayson Werth, Was, LF
Jayson Werth went 0 for 4 Monday as the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-0. He ended the game with a .267 batting average.

Analysis: Werth is 2 for 17 in his last six games overall and 1 for 19 in his past five on the road.
5/29/2017 Hunter Strickland, SF, P
Hunter Strickland allowed one run on zero hits in 0.2 innings as the San Francisco Giants lost to the Washington Nationals 3-0 on Monday. Strickland did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 1.53 ERA and 1.36 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Strickland was ejected in the eighth inning after Bryce Harper charged the mound when he hit the Washington star with a pitch. Strickland had to be dragged off the field by four teammates and could face a suspension.
5/29/2017 Randall Delgado, Ari, P
Randall Delgado allowed one run on five hits in 5.2 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Monday. Delgado struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.47 ERA and 1.10 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Delgado has performed well since being moved into the rotation, yielding just two earned runs and striking out 11 in 9 2/3 innings over his two starts. It's still unclear if he'll remain in the rotation once Taijuan Walker returns from his blister issues, though he'll likely make at least one more start.
5/29/2017 Brandon Crawford, SF, SS
Brandon Crawford went 1 for 4 Monday as the San Francisco Giants lost to the Washington Nationals 3-0. He ended the game with a .266 batting average.
