Giants vs. Dodgers Tuesday Prediction
In a rather surprise, the Giants’ arms shut down the Dodgers’ bats on Monday night when the rivals met in L.A. Will Game 2 also turn into a low-scoring affair when Clayton Kershaw opposes Shaun Anderson in the pitching matchup?

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Brandon Crawford went 1-for-4 with a two-run double on Monday in the Giants' win over the Dodgers. Crawford gave the Giants a 2-0 lead with a two-run double in the second inning off of Kenta Maeda. It's the ninth double of the season for Crawford, and he's driven in 21 runs over 67 games. He's been better as of late, but the shortstop still has an ugly .603 OPS over 230 at-bats.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Max Muncy went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in the Dodgers' loss to the Giants on Monday. Muncy picked up the only run the Dodgers would score off of Tyler Beede when he took the right-hander deep in the second inning. It's the 17th homer of the season for the versatile player, and he's driven in 45 runs over 71 games. That puts Muncy on pace for a 38-homer, 100-RBI season to go along with a .935 OPS. We're pretty sure we can safely call 2018 anything but a fluke, now.
