Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN
Mookie Betts went 1-for-4 in Saturday's matchup with the Padres. These Padres-Dodgers games certainly know drama. Mookie's game-ending diving catch in the ninth robbed Tommy Pham of a possible game-tying RBI hit to seal the win for Los Angeles. Betts also provided some plate production: The hit was a double in the eighth inning. Betts has reached safely in nine of the ten games he's played this season; contributing to a sparkling .920 OPS.
San Diego Padres DFS SPIN
Blake Snell was unable to get out of the first inning Tuesday in Pittsburgh, recording just two outs. Sometimes baseball doesn't make sense. Snell entered this one having allowing just two runs while fanning 16 over 9 2/3 frames, but the feeble Pirates offense managed to chase him in the first inning. What's worse, Snell retired the first two batters he faced before six straight reached, with the final straw being a hit by pitch which loaded the bases. The lefty didn't look happy to be pulled (sound familiar?), but you can't blame manager Jayce Tingler with the southpaw having thrown 38 pitches. Snell will take on the defending champion Dodgers on Sunday.
