Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Three-hit game

Lux went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in a 7-1 win over the Nationals on Wednesday. Lux's three-hit performance against the Nationals punctuated his red-hot July. The 24-year-old second baseman has an OPS of 1.004 this month and is in the midst of a breakout season. His 2.8 Fangraphs WAR is equal to Pete Alonso's and a touch higher than those of Kyle Tucker and Vladimir Guerrero. Lux also has a BABIP of .363, so it is worth watching to see if his numbers regress over the remainder of the season.

Lux went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 13-0 win over the Rockies. Lux has found his swing again, posting multiple hits in four of the last five games. He contributed an RBI single and a run during the Dodgers' five-run fourth inning.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Knocks in two runs Sunday

Lux went 2-for-4 with a run and two RBI in Sunday's 7-4 victory against the Giants. Lux notched his first RBI of the contest with a single in the third inning and plated another run with a single in the seventh. The second baseman batted fifth in the order for the first time this season, though that may simply have been a result of Will Smith getting a day off and Justin Turner (abdomen) continuing to be unable to play. Regardless, Lux has hit well this season, as all three marks in his .295/.373/.424 slash line are a career high.
