Detroit Tigers Fantasy Spin
Christin Stewart blasted his third home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to lead the Tigers to victory over the Twins on Saturday afternoon in Minnesota. Stewart deposited a Michael Pineda offering over the wall in center field for a solo shot in the sixth inning, pulling the Tigers to within a run at 4-3. That would be as close as they would get though. He finished the day 1-for-4. While he has shown impressive power with three long balls and 11 RBI on the season, Stewart is slashing just .182/.255/.477 on the season.
Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Saturday, leading the Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Tigers. The Twins entered the third inning with a 2-0 deficit, but by the time the inning was through the Twins had taken the lead for good. Rosario provided the biggest hit of the frame, with a go-ahead two-run single off of Tyson Ross. His bat is starting to heat up, as with the two-hit effort he's now hitting .238/.304/.429 to go with a pair of home runs and nine RBI.
