Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Trea Turner went 2-for-4 with a home run -- part of the Nationals' back-to-back-to-back-to-back homers in the eighth inning -- and two runs scored in a 5-2 win over the Padres on Sunday. The novelty of it is certainly the big storyline, but it should be noted that the homers were just as important to the game outcome as they were to fans of fun. Howie Kendrick's solo homer with one out in the eighth broke a 1-1 tie, and Turner followed with a blast to straight-away center field to extend the lead, a run they'd end up needing as well. The shortstop now has an extra-base hit in six of his last seven games, upping his season line to .273/.316/.491. Turner has four homers and eight steals through 26 games thus far.
Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin
Yoan Moncada went 4-for-5 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Royals. Moncada knocked four singles on the afternoon, with his run-scoring hit in the seventh inning extending the White Sox lead. The good day extended his modest hitting streak to 10 games, during which he's hitting .381 (16-for-42) with three homers, seven RBI and five runs scored. The stretch is a microcosm of the terrific first half the 24-year-old has enjoyed thus far, hitting .294/.348/.508 overall with 12 homers, 39 RBI, 38 runs scored and five steals.
