Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin

Andrew Benintendi hit a grand slam and drove in five runs to help the Red Sox to a 6-5 victory over the Rays on Saturday. Benintendi gave Boston a 5-0 lead early in this one with a grand salami off of Charlie Morton; his second homer of the season. That was a big hit, obviously, but he also picked up another big RBI with a sac fly in the ninth inning after the Boston bullpen couldn't hold that lead. Benintendi is now hitting .277/.347/.462 to begin the season. Solid numbers, but no one should be surprised if the 24-year-old improved upon that slash.

Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Austin Meadows went 1-for-4 with a two-run triple in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday. Meadows brought the Rays to within a run with a two-run triple off of Bobby Poyner in the seventh inning. It was one of four triples the Rays hit in the game, with Kevin Kiermaier, Brandon Lowe and Ji-Man Choi joining in the parade. While this was the only hit of the game for Meadows, it continues his sensational season with a .351 average and 1.098 OPS hitting at the top of the Tampa Bay lineup.

MLB Betting Trends


The Red Sox are 42-19 in David Price’s last 61 starts.

Tampa Bay

The Rays are 4-0 in Tyler Glasnow’s last four outings and are 5-2 in his last seven home starts.


Price allowed four runs against the A’s and Diamondbacks, respectively, but is coming off an excellent start versus the Orioles in which he allowed zero runs and three hits over seven innings. I’m banking on him pitching well against his former team today, as the Rays have somewhat struggled versus lefties this season (at least compared to right-handed hitters, whom they’ve destroyed). Glasnow, meanwhile, has been outstanding this season, allowing just three runs in four starts. Still, the price is right (no pun intended) on the Red Sox.

The Pick: Boston Red Sox -105
