Adam Rosales
Padres' Adam Rosales: Hits walk-off homer Friday
Adam Rosales, 3B, SD
7/30/2016
News: Rosales went 2-for-4 with a double and the game-winning home run in the bottom of the 10th inning Friday against the Reds.

Rosales' walk-off blast was his eighth of the season, and the second in his last three games. Friday's game-winner also gave Rosales' a new career high for home runs in a season. The 33-year-old third baseman also collected his first multi-hit game since June 2 while raising his average to .297, its highest mark since April 29. If he continues performing at a high level, Rosales might be able to earn a heftier workload out of his platoon role.

News: Flores went 1-for-4 with an RBI Friday versus the Rockies.

Flores thought he had hit his 11th homer of the season in the bottom of the ninth inning, but it was overturned after the replay determined it was fan interference. Regardless of the call, Flores still displayed the July power surge is still in effect. The third baseman has seven homers this month. Before 2016, Flores had never hit more than five in a single month (and he only did that once).

In addition to the five homers, he's piled up 23 doubles and a pair of triples on the year.
