Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Ryan Zimmerman slugged a pair of home runs in the Nationals' defeat of the Marlins on Sunday. Zimmerman got to Marlins starter Trevor Richards in the fourth inning and added another dinger off reliever Tyler Kinley in the top of the ninth. The veteran first baseman finished the day 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. He's still batting just .203/.304/.390 for the season.
Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with a walk and a triple in Sunday's win over the Phillies. The triple, off Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff in the fifth inning, was his second in as many days and his third of the year. The Phils being in town has given Blackmon life, as he hit .555 (10-for-18) with the two triples, two homers and four RBI in the four-game series. It's been a welcome and overdue breakout for the 32-year-old, and after a slow start to the year he's now hitting a much more representative .286/.340/.462 overall.
