San Francisco Giants DFS SPIN

Jakob Junis yielded two runs over five innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Cardinals. He also allowed three hits, issued two walks, and struck out five. After retiring the side in order in the top of the first, Junis hit Albert Pujols to begin the top of the second. And on the first pitch of the very next at-bat, Juan Yepez took him deep for a two-run home run. If he remains in the rotation, he'll take the mound again sometime next week.

St. Louis Cardinals DFS Spin

Dakota Hudson gave up three runs over 4 2/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Giants. Hudson allowed five hits and walked four. Three batters into his start, Hudson had already issued two walks while also throwing a wild pitch. He managed to hold the Giants scoreless in the bottom of the first, but in the bottom of the second, he gave up a two-run home run to LaMonte Wade Jr. This was the first time he's ever failed to strike out a batter while completing more than four innings (47 career starts). A Saturday afternoon rematch against the Giants is next up.


Despite winning on Friday night in St. Louis, the Giants are still just 3-9 in their last 12 games at Busch Stadium, are 1-6 in their last seven games as a road underdog and are 2-5 in their last seven road games versus a team with a winning record. On the other side, the Cardinals are 36-17 in their last 53 games as a favorite and are 11-5 in their last 16 games when playing the second game of a series.
