Justin Bour +.157

Justin Bour started game one of the series in his familiar cleanup spot. He struck out to end the first inning with a runner on first (-.022). In the fourth, with two outs and the bases empty, he singled into right field (+.015), but was stranded there on Brian Anderson’s force play to end the frame. He then fouled out with a runner on second for the second out of the sixth inning (-.027). With nobody out and a runner on first in the ninth, he fouled out again (-.011).

Bour was moved down to fifth in the order on Saturday night, and drew a walk to lead off the second (+.037). He would score on Bryan Holaday’s groundout a bit later. With a man on first and nobody out in the fourth, he drew another walk (+.053). In the sixth inning, Bour flew out with one out and a man on first (-.030). He singled to left with one out in the ninth (+.001), but it was really a bit of a last gasp, as the Marlins expired by an 8-1 final moments later.

On Sunday, Bour drew a two out walk in the first, batting third (+.012). In the fourth inning, Bour hit a triple to left field (+.111). It was his first triple of the season and just the second of his five-season big league career. He scored a moment later on Julio Teheran’s balk (+.012). Later in the inning, with two outs and a runner on second, Bour was intentionally walked (+.001). He drew a two out walk in the sixth with J.T. Realmuto on first base (+.002). That was already a career high in walks for Bour, but the Braves intentionally walked him again in the eighth, with a runner on second and one out (+.002).
