First Base Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Travis Ishikawa, 1B, MIL10/23/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Giants left fielder Travis Ishikawa is starting in left field for Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.
Insight: Giants manager Bruce Bochy is sticking with the same lineup without the designated hitter, which means Michael Morse returns to the bench.
Eric Hosmer, 1B, KANHot10/15/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is batting clean up in Game 4 of the ALCS against the Orioles on Wednesday.
Insight: With the Royals on the verge of its first World Series trip in nearly 30 years, manager Ned Yost is not changing a thing. He is sticking with the exact same lineup that has won the first seven playoff games this postseason.
Travis Ishikawa, 1B, MIL10/14/2014 7:52:00 PM
Description: Giants left fielder Travis Ishikawa was 1-for-3 with a bases-clearing double in the first as the Giants defeated the Cardinals in 10 innings, 5-4, in Game 3 of the NLCS on Tuesday.
Insight: Ishikawa remained in left field despite the fact Michael Morse is on the roster. Ishikawa came up with the bases loaded in the bottom of the first, and the Giants already ahead, 1-0. The left fielder broke the game open with a double. Although the Cardinals were able to comeback and tie the game, San Francisco won in extras on a throwing error.
Eric Hosmer, 1B, KANHot10/13/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is 7-for-17 (.444) with a pair of home runs against Orioles left-hander Wei-Tin Chen.
Insight: Hosmer only had 58 RBI in 131 games during the regular season and has two homers and seven RBI in 23 postseason at-bats.
Matt Adams, 1B, STL10/13/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams continues to get the big hits, slamming his second home run of the 2014 playoffs.
Insight: Adams deposited a Clayton Kershaw pitch into the right field bullpen in Game 4 of the NLDS and Sunday he took a Hunter Strickland pitch into the right field seats.
Eric Hosmer, 1B, KANHot10/11/2014 8:34:00 PM
Description: Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer knocked in two runs Saturday night to bring his 2014 playoff total to seven through six games.
Insight: Hosmer only had 58 RBI in 131 games during the regular season. Talk about getting hot at the right time.
Travis Ishikawa, 1B, MIL10/11/2014 4:27:00 PM
Description: Giants' Travis Ishikawa will start in left field for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cardinals on Saturday.
Insight: Michael Morse is on the series roster, but he will mostly be used as a pinch hitter. That leaves Ishikawa in left.
Eric Hosmer, 1B, KAN10/11/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer does not have a hit in his career against Orioles starter Bud Norris.
Insight: Hosmer has just five at-bats against Norris, but has yet to reach base against him. It will be tough taking him out of any playoff fantasy lineups, however, as he has been one of the best Royals hitters this postseason.
