Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Rich Hill threw seven scoreless innings, striking out nine, as the Dodgers shut out the Phillies 8-0 on Sunday. Hill allowed just three hits and walked three over his seven innings, keeping down a good Phillies bunch. The story with Hill continues to be that he's terrific when he's on the mound; the problem is staying on the mound. He has yet to allow more than three earned runs in seven starts, owning a 2.25 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 46/9 K/BB ratio across 40 innings of work. A delectable start against the light-hitting Giants is on tap for the 39-year-old on Saturday.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Jeff Samardzija yielded just one run on three hits over six innings in Sunday's win over the Orioles. Lovely work from Samardzija on Sunday. The lone run he allowed over his six innings of work came on a solo home run by Trey Mancini in the first inning. Other than that, he had himself a clean outing. The veteran right-hander struck out six without walking a batter on the afternoon. He has turned in a sturdy, workman-like season to date, pitching to a 3.61 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 51/19 K/BB ratio across 62 1/3 innings. Up next on the schedule, a home start against the Dodgers.
