Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN

Brad Miller slugged a two-run home run Wednesday as the Phillies took down the Cardinals. Johan Oviedo looked like he was going to get through the fifth inning in line for his first major league win, but he hung a breaking ball to Miller, who hit a no-doubter over the right field wall. Miller has been in the leadoff spot for the Phils each of the last three games and should continue to see fairly regular starts at multiple positions.

St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN

Tyler O'Neill went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies. Vince Velasquez hung a breaking ball to O'Neill in the second inning, and the hulking outfielder lined it 109.2 mph over the left field wall to put the Cardinals in the lead at the time. It was the hardest-hit ball of the game, and O'Neill also owned the second-hardest-hit ball with his 108.5 mph single in the sixth. O'Neill has started each of the last five games in left field and now has three dingers over that span.
