Giancarlo Stanton delivered a game-winning, RBI single on Sunday, propelling the Yankees to a 3-2 walk-off victory over the Nationals. Stanton stepped to the plate to face lefty stopper Brad Hand with the potential winning run at third base and only one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. He wasted no time, promptly smacking a base hit into left field, sending the Yankees' faithful fans home in walk-off fashion on Mother's Day. The 31-year-old outfielder has been phenomenal to open the 2021 campaign, hitting .292/.356/.558 with 16 runs scored, nine homers and 24 RBI across 132 plate appearances.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Spin

Willy Adames went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer on Sunday in a 4-3 win over the A's. Adames took Cole Irvin deep in the fifth inning with a 103.8 mile per hour homer that would drive in three runs to tie the game. It was the only hit of the day for the 25-year-old shortstop, who's hitting just .189 on the year following Sunday's action. Adames could be in danger of losing playing time once the team believes number one prospect Wander Franco is ready for the majors.
