Taking a look around the league, here’s a recap of last night’s action and suggestions for your fantasy baseball team. Suggestions? Let us know in the comment section.

Mr. Clutch (pitcher)Adam Wainwright kept the struggling Washington Nationals down with 8.1 innings, five hits and nine strikeouts, while grabbing the win last night. Wainwright improved to 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA and a microscopic 0.99 WHIP.

Mr. Clutch (hitter)Howie Kendrick knocked two home runs and four runs batted in while ending the 11-inning affair with his second walk-off home run. Kendrick is now batting .297 with 14 RBIs on the year.

Surprise, surprise!Marwin Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a home run for the Houston Astros yesterday. Gonzalez has produced well for the Astros, batting .289 with three home runs on the year, playing at a highly demanding position in shortstop.

Here comes the heatPedro Alvarez, known as a streaky hitter, will make the “left out in the breeze” list often. But, Alvarez, is heating up; he’s 6-for-19 with three home runs during that span. Pedro homers in bunches, so grab him while you can, and sit him when he cools off.

Left out in the breeze – Pedro’s twin brother, Chris Carter, went through his heating up phase a few weeks ago, knocking four home runs out in a span of a couple days. Since then, Carter is 2-for-21 with 13 strikeouts. Ouch. He’s also losing playing time to Fernando Martinez.

Who’s trending?Didi Gregorius has been a hot pickup as of late. The left-handed hitting shortstop is batting .400 with two home runs in the five games he’s played in for Arizona.

Bench me, please? – Seattle’s shortstop, Brendan Ryan is batting 1-for-18 in his last seven games, with only two hits in his last 28 at-bats.
