Cleveland Indians DFS SPIN
Aaron Civale allowed one run on three hits with six strikeouts while picking up the win vs the Tigers on Saturday. Civale was locked in all night, and with just 67 pitches through the sixth inning, it looked like he may have been heading for a complete game. The right-hander had to settle for garden variety win, but faced just one batter over the minimum through seven frames and left to a standing ovation. Civale will look to keep this momentum going into his next start against the White Sox in Chicago.
