Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Cody Bellinger blasted his 14th home run of the season on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 7-6 victory over the Pirates on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning, then tagged Trevor Williams for a solo shot in the fourth. He also added an RBI single in the seventh inning that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. The budding 23-year-old superstar is off to an unbelievable start to his 2019 season, slashing .427/.500/.913 with 14 homers and 36 RBI. He's tied with Christian Yelich for the MLB lead in home runs, while he leads all big league hitters in hits (42), batting average, runs scored (29), on-base percentage (.500) and slugging (.913).
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Kevin Pillar went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday. Pillar was most of the Giants' offense this day, knocking a two-run single in the sixth inning before launching a solo homer in the ninth. Pillar now has five homers, all as a member of the Giants, 17 RBI and 12 runs scored on the year. He's hitting just .222/.253/.444 overall, making him one of the better offensive performers on the Giants this year.
