Los Angeles Angels DFS SPIN
Jared Walsh had a game-tying RBI single in the ninth inning and a three-run homer in the 10th of Wednesday's win over the Red Sox. Walsh emerged victorious from a nine-pitch battle with Jake Diekman, lining a single through the right side to plate the game-tying run with two out. He then broke the game open in the 10th with a three-run blast, his third long ball of the season. It's in a much smaller sample, but Walsh has actually fared better against lefties this season.
Boston Red Sox DFS Spin
Xander Bogaerts hit his second homer of the season Wednesday versus the Angels. Bogaerts put the Red Sox ahead in the bottom of the eighth inning with a no-doubter over the Green Monster off of Aaron Loup. It was his first home run since April 16, as Bogaerts hasn't been providing much home run pop even as he's off to a tremendous start at the plate.
