The home run was his 13th on the season. Freeman continues to tear it up in June, and he's now hitting .348 (31-for-89) on the month with five homers, 13 RBI and 12 runs scored.
Gonzalez has been poor at the plate recently, collecting just two hits in 18 at-bats over his last five games. The veteran first baseman will yield Sunday's start to Scott Van Slyke at first base, who could be a candidate to start there two days in a row, while Gonzalez will look to get back at it Tuesday when the Dodgers travel to Milwaukee.
Jaso simply can't stick against left-handed pitchers, collecting just one single in 14 at-bats against them this season. With Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber Sunday, Pittsburgh will turn to David Freese at first base, batting second. With another southpaw (Scott Kazmir) set to take the mound Monday, Jaso will likely ride the pine once again.
Gonzalez will take a seat for the first time since June 1, giving way to Scott Van Slyke at first base. The month of June hasn't been good to the left-handed slugger, as Gonzalez is batting just .183 over 90 plate appearances, collecting a total of five extra-base hits over that span. This performance has brought his season batting average down to .263, but perhaps a day on the bench could help him right the ship.
Adams was held out of Saturday's lineup after being a late scratch Friday due to back tightness, and the first baseman will sit yet another game Sunday afternoon. He would have likely been on the bench for the series finale anyway, as the Cardinals are facing a left-hander in James Paxton. Nonetheless, Adams should be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener in Kansas City. In the meantime, Brandon Moss will draw another start at first base.
Zimmerman has made eight straight starts at first base, but will give way to Clint Robinson on Sunday against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers. It's been a rough month for Zimmerman at the plate, as the veteran is 12-for-64 in June, dropping his season batting average 20 points to .230. A .261 BABIP may lead some to think that Zimmerman is suffering from some bad luck, but when lined up next to a career-low 14 percent line drive rate, it becomes apparent that he simply isn't hitting the ball as hard. That being said, there hasn't been any indication from Nationals' brass that the veteran is in line to lose at-bats any time soon.
The 28-year-old slugger is enjoying his best month of the season, and is now slashing .340/.407/.679 following his third straight game with a homer Saturday. Bour also has nine RBI over that span, and has hit safely in eight of his last nine contests overall.
A late scratch from Friday's lineup due to lower back tightness, he will remain out Saturday as Brandon Moss takes over at first base. Adams also battled back problems late last month, but there has been nothing to this point to suggest he is worse off than day-to-day.
Belt hit a clutch, bases-clearing double to put the Giants ahead in the seventh inning Friday. He continues his breakout campaign with an impressive .305/.410/.537 slash line through 72 games. The only criticism of his season could be the lack of steals after swiping nine bags in 2015. As long as he continues to produce in the heart of the lineup, his owners will give him a pass.
The 32-year-old will give way to Daniel Descalso at first base after five consecutive starts. Reynolds hit safely in those five starts and the power is finally starting to show up a little as well, as he's hit three homers this week to bring his total to seven on the year. Reynolds is striking out at a career-low rate this season but the average is still a mirage (.377 BABIP, .299 for career).
