The homer was his 19th of the season. He ended the game with a .272 batting average.
Analysis: Adams had a pinch-hit, two-run homer off the floundering Greg Holland in the ninth inning, his third in his last 12 at-bats. Unfortunately, the power hitter has been mostly relegated to the bench since Matt Kemp returned from the DL last week.

Analysis: Adams made his first start in left field since early May but left after five innings due to dizziness and isn't in Wednesday's lineup. The in-season addition has cooled off since a torrid start to his Atlanta tenure, as he's 6 for 30 over his last 10 games.

The homer was his 16th of the season. He ended the game with a .288 batting average.
Analysis: The slugger was having a very quiet day until connecting for a game-tying three-run homer off the usually impenetrable Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning. The Braves continue their road trip Monday in Arizona, where Adams is 7 for 20 in seven lifetime visits but has yet to homer there.

Analysis: Such an experience would've been hard to imagine before Adams' offseason conditioning and nutrition program helped him lose 30 pounds and reshape his body. The past couple seasons he entered camp in a battle for the first base spot that ultimately resulted in a platoon. This spring, with left-handed hitting Matt Carpenter moving from first to third, Adams, who also hits from the left side, arrived in camp searching for a role.
