Houston Astros Fantasy Spin
Michael Brantley went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Astros topped the Red Sox 7-3 on Saturday, their 10th consecutive victory. That's now 10 straight wins and 13 out of 14 for the sizzling Astros. Brantley opened the scoring in the first inning with a run-scoring double and came around to score later in the inning. He has been a force in the middle of the Astros' lineup, slashing .331/.382/.571 with 10 homers, 32 RBI and three stolen bases.
Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin
Christian Vazquez blasted his career-high sixth home run as the Red Sox fell to the Astros on Saturday night. Vazquez took Corbin Martin deep for the solo shot in the fourth inning, trimming the Red Sox' deficit to 6-3. The hot-hitting backstop finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting an impressive .312/.361/.541 with six long balls and 16 RBI. He has been one of the best all-around catchers in the league from a fantasy perspective this season.

Somehow the over didn’t cash yesterday for bettors despite the Astros scoring five runs in the top of the first and the Red Sox adding another run in their half-inning. That said, the over is a perfect 5-0 in Brad Peacock’s last five starts versus the Red Sox and is 4-0 in his last four road outings versus Boston. The over is also 15-7 in the last 22 meetings between these two teams at Fenway Park and is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings overall.
The Pick: Astros/Red Sox OVER 9
