Third baseman Sheldon Neuse went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two strikeouts as the Dodgers lost to the Astros 5-2 on Wednesday.
Luis Garcia and company were rolling on Wednesday so the Dodgers couldn't get much going offensively. Neuse tacked on a solo home run, his third of the season, off of Ryne Stanek in the top of the eighth inning but it proved to be inconsequential to the outcome of the game. The 26-year-old is slashing a meager .189/.204/.377 with three home runs and four RBI across 53 at-bats this season.
Second baseman Sheldon Neuse went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Marlins.
Neuse laced his first double of the season off of Pablo Lopez in the second inning and came around to score via an Austin Barnes double later in the frame. The 26-year-old second baseman should start to see more at-bats with Corey Seager out for at least a month with a fractured hand. He shouldn't be prioritized on the waiver wire, though. He's slashing .186/.186/.349 with two home runs and three RBI over 43 at-bats on the year.

Neuse hit 19 homers in hitter friendly Las Vegas last year and figures to be up at some point this year, but he will need to improve his contact percentage along with his hard contact and fly ball rate in order to be considered a regular option at the major league level. Still just 25, he will work to unlock more power in Las Vegas.
