Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Slaps pair of doubles

Marte is on a 16-game hitting streak, and he was the only Diamondback to record multiple hits Saturday. He's 23-for-59 (.390) during the streak. The second baseman hasn't enjoyed over-the-fence power with just three home runs in 50 contests, but he's up to 19 doubles.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Ends HR drought

Marte went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-6 win over Pittsburgh. Marte's two-run shot in the fifth inning extended his hitting streak to 15 games and ended a stretch of 20 contests without a homer. Since swatting 32 home runs in 2019, Marte's power has been held in check by missed time due to injury. He's been healthy thus far but has just three home runs over 49 games, though he's also added 17 doubles this year.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Extends hitting streak off bench

Marte went 1-for-2 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 8-7 extra-inning win over Atlanta. Marte was initially given the day off, but he entered as a pinch hitter for Jake Hager in the seventh inning, grounding into a double play. He stayed in the game at second base and delivered a single and a stolen base in Arizona's ninth-inning rally to tie the game. Marte's hitting streak is up to 11 contests, a span in which he's gone 15-for-43 (.349). For the season, the veteran infielder is up to a .260/.325/.405 slash line with two home runs, 16 RBI, 23 runs scored and three stolen bases through 191 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Streak reaches double digits

Marte went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 6-2 win over Atlanta. Marte's first-inning single extended a hit streak to 10 consecutive games, during which he's 14-for-41 with four doubles and eight runs scored. The double gives him 17 -- tied for fourth in MLB. He's still below career norms in the major percentage categories, but that just speaks to the depth he fell to during an April that saw him slash .146/.211/.256. The 28-year-old flipped the script in May with a line of .360/.424/.539 while putting together hitting streaks of nine and 10 games.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Riding eight-game hitting streak

Marte went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. The two-bagger extended Marte's hitting streak to eight games, leaving him one contest away from matching his season-long total. In spite of the two eight-plus-game hitting streaks, Marte is still sitting on a disappointing .250/.315/.390 slash line for the season. He'll look to stay hot in the series finale Sunday, when he'll be batting third as Arizona's designated hitter.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Scratched from Game 2

Marte was originally in the lineup for Tuesday's nightcap but was absent from an updated starting nine for undisclosed reasons. He came off the bench in Game 1 and went 2-for-2 with two RBI, and it's unlikely the Diamondbacks would opt to keep him out of the lineup for both games of the twin bill without some sort of injury.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Resting for afternoon game

Marte will sit for the afternoon portion of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. Marte has hit .333/.419/.630 over his last 15 games, a dramatic reversal from the .135/.207/.203 line he recorded over his first 20. He won't be asked to start twice in one day Tuesday, so Jake Hager will get the call at second base for the afternoon contest.
