Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin

Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with an RBI in the Phillies’ blowout loss to the Braves on Sunday. Harper plated the Phillies' lone run of the contest with an opposite-field RBI single in the fifth inning. That was pretty much it for the Philadelphia offense, which generated only six hits and left eight runners on base in the loss. The 26-year-old superstar has rebounded from a slow start and is now up to 12 homers and 49 RBI across 309 plate appearances this season.

Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three runs scored in the Nationals’ lopsided victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday. Rendon clobbered a two-run dinger -- his 16th round-tripper of the season -- to left field off Diamondbacks reliever Zack Godley in the sixth inning to extend the Nationals’ lead to eight runs at the time. The long ball may have come in proverbial garbage time, but fantasy owners don’t mind. The 29-year-old superstar third baseman has been red-hot at the plate, going deep six times in 14 games this month. He’s hitting .321/.415/.660 with 52 runs scored, 50 RBI and one stolen base across 246 plate appearances this season.

The Phillies are 3-7 in their last 10 road games and are 2-5 in their last seven games overall.

The over is also 6-0 in the Phillies’ last six road games and has cashed in five of their last six games overall. On the other side, the over is 5-1 in the Nationals’ last six games overall and is 6-2-1 in the Nationals’ last nine games versus the NL East.
