San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday. He drilled a solo bomb off starter Pablo Lopez in the fourth inning, then plated another run with a fielder's choice grounder in the ninth. Belt's batting average is down this year but he is compensating with some additional thump. He has a .230 batting average with eight home runs and 20 RBI in 192 plate appearances. He is on pace to topple his career high of 18 homers, which he's done twice.
Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin
Jorge Alfaro went 4-for-4 and scored a run in a 4-2 win over the Giants on Wednesday. One of his hits was a double. He led off the seventh with an infield single and later came around to score on a double by Neil Walker. Alfaro was the only player on either team to get more than one hit in this game. He is one of the better hitters among catchers in the league but due to the lack of talent surrounding him in the Marlins' lineup his good rate stats haven't been able to produce much in the way of runs and RBI. He is slashing .278/.335/.457 with eight home runs, 19 RBI and 18 runs scored in 43 games.
