Pittsburgh Pirates Fantasy Spin

Josh Bell homered twice and collected four RBI to power the Pirates to a 7-2 win over the Padres on Saturday. Bell kicked off the scoring with a towering solo homer off Padres’ starter Nick Margevicius in the second inning and followed it up with a three-run tater in the third. He capped off an impressive three-hit performance with a single in the seventh and also walked in the ninth. The 26-year-old slugger has left the yard eight times in 16 games this month and is up to 14 round-trippers on the season. He’s rapidly evolving into an elite four-category fantasy stud, hitting .333/.402/.704 with 30 runs scored and 43 RBI across 184 plate appearances.

San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin

Manny Machado went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a walk in the Padres' loss to the Pirates on Saturday. Machado put the Padres on the board with an RBI single off Pirates' reliever Steven Brault in the third inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats. He also struck out twice. The entire Padres' offense looked out of sorts, managing only eight hits combined, including only two extra-base hits, in this one. The 26-year-old superstar shortstop is hitting .268/.347/.464 with 23 runs scored, nine homers, 24 RBI and one steal in 190 plate appearances.
