Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Ian Desmond hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers. Desmond was hitless in three at-bats when he stepped to the dish in the ninth inning against one of the fiercest relievers in the game, Josh Hader. But it was Desmond who won this battle, crushing a Hader fastball to left-center for a two-run homer. The homer was Desmond's third of the year and his second in three games as he has slowly started to heat up at the plate. And we do mean slowly -- through Tuesday, the 33-year-old is batting just .196/.235/.370 in 27 games.
Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, and the Brewers edged the Rockies 4-3 on Tuesday. A day after breaking out with a two-homer, four-RBI game, Aguilar found some more magic in the seventh inning. After a couple of one-out singles against Rockies starter German Marquez, Aguilar turned around a 96-mph fastball for a three-run blast to extend the Brewers' lead. He's still hitting just .163/.244/.300 on the year, but sometimes all it takes to find your way at the dish is a stretch like this. It's a small sample, but fantasy players should take notice and keep an eye on Aguilar's production in the coming days.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 4-1 in Antonio Senzatela’s last five road starts.
The Brewers have won four of Chase Anderson’s last five starts.
Anderson pitched well in his two starts for the Brewers this season but he’s a fly-ball pitcher that allows a lot of hard contact. The Rockies have yet to break out their bats in this series and they are a much different lineup away from Coors Field. That said, Miller Park is a pure hitter’s park and everyone knows what Nolan Arenado and Co. are capable of. Granted, the Brewers could go off against Senzatela but at least he’s a groundball pitcher that doesn’t typically hand out free passes. This is a good spot to take the Rockies.
