Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Chad Pinder delivered a walk-off single Wednesday in the Athletics’ 6-5 victory over Texas. It was a day of peaks and valleys for Pinder, who, in addition to his game-winning hit, also struck out twice and killed a first-inning rally by grounding into a fielder’s choice. Pinder’s star turn came in the bottom of the ninth when he stroked a two-out single to right field off Chris Martin, plating Stephen Piscotty from second base. That marked the first walk-off hit of Pinder’s four-year career. The outfielder had a marvelous series, earning six hits in 14 at-bats while boosting his season average from .295 to .320.

Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Teoscar Hernandez contributed one of the Blue Jays’ two hits Wednesday in a loss to San Francisco. Hernandez collected a one-out base hit—Toronto’s first of the day—in the fifth but got greedy trying to stretch a single into a double and was gunned down at second base. He grounded out and struck out in his other two plate appearances. The Blue Jays were nearly no-hit by Jordan Zimmerman and Trevor Bauer earlier this year and didn’t have their first base-runner until the fifth inning Wednesday against Drew Pomeranz. Luckily help is on the way with top prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. set to debut Friday night against Oakland

MLB Betting Trends


The over is 12-3 in the A’s last 15 games overall and is 15-5-1 in their last 21 road outings.

The A’s have owned the Blue Jays in recent meetings, going 4-0 in their last four games at Rogers Centre and 7-3 in their last 10 games versus Toronto overall. The Blue Jays are also winless in Stroman’s last four home starts and are just 1-6 in his last seven outings overall.

The Pick: Oakland A’s +115
